Research and Markets: Global LNG Market Report 2015

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/qz8k7p/global_lng_market) has announced the addition of the "Global LNG Market" report to their offering.

The report covers basic topics such as what is LNG to more in depth ones such as the economics of LNG, barriers to the growth of LNG, growth drivers, major players, major LNG terminals, etc.

Liquefied natural gas or LNG is natural gas that has been processed to remove either valuable components e.g. helium, or those impurities that could cause difficulty downstream. LNG offers an energy density comparable to petrol and diesel fuels and produces less pollution, but its relatively high cost of production and the need to store it in expensive cryogenic tanks have prevented its widespread use in commercial applications.

The emergence of LNG is not only due to its efficiency and eco-friendliness, but also due to economical reasons. LNG is quite competitive vis-à-vis alternative sources such as naphtha, crude and coal and is also competitive vis-à-vis piped gas if transported over distances exceeding 2000 km.

With projected decreases in conventional onshore and offshore natural gas production and the projected decline in natural gas imports through to 2025, growth in U.S. and global natural gas supplies will depend on non-conventional domestic production, natural gas imports, and imports of LNG.
