Editor review:
This annual report on LNG from the International Gas Union, this year sponsored by Total, is a useful overview of an industry in flux due to the US shale gas revolution's reduced need for LNG on the North American continent. This is, of course, no small thing given the massive infrastructure investment that an LNG terminal, for instance, is. On the other hand, the shale boom has created some opportunity for LNG export from North America, an unthinkable thing a few years ago, and still politically controversial. The International Gas Union (IGU), founded in 1931, is a worldwide non-profit organisation promoting the political, technical and economic progress of the gas industry. The authorship is important because it undoubtedly means this report tends to take positions that favor their aim. On the other hand, the quality of the report itself does reflect the fact that a gas industry taskforce consisting of TOTAL , France; Qatargas, Qatar; American Gas Association (AGA), USA; Vopak, Netherlands; GIIGNL, France; Dourogás, Portugal; Petrobras, Brazil; and Kogas, South Korea, oversaw its production.
