The success of shale gas is well established. The shear size and locations of the production areas have made shale gas the most significant change to the North American energy complex in the last ten years.
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.
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.
This course is delivered through our training partner The Energy Management Institute (EMI).
