More than half of the top ten largest projects in the world today are LNG projects. The energy professional will need to be well-versed in regards to natural gas and LNG principles for maximum contribution and team coordination. Now, gas export activities to distant markets in Europe and Asia-Pacific have begun. Conventional fields and plays continue to receive ongoing attention in the historically productive regions. Deepwater exploration and production efforts progress globally. Not surprisingly, natural gas production and reserves are increasing even though oil finds may be the desired target. Gas accumulations are more common than oil by 2 or 3 times and now the technological combination of horizontal drilling and hydrofracturing have opened new realms of opportunity worldwide. With the pending impact of game-changing rising reserves and production of gas on the global energy complex, it is critical to understand all the implications and issues associated with their production and distribution techniques for global supply. Natural gas is a good choice as a clean, efficient fuel for electric power generation, transportation and industrial / residential use. LNG is the mode of transport of natural gas from production areas to major market areas beyond the reach of pipelines.
