Edition 1, 2012
This NRG Expert Natural Gas Utilities Report is a guide providing a fully comprehensive global analysis for the Natural Gas Industry. This report includes; a description of the different types of natural gas and uses, the global natural gas situation including reserves, market, trade and the gas exporting countries forum, coverage of the natural gas market at the regional level, in depth reporting of the economic situation and natural gas market including natural gas production, transportation, distribution and generation of electricity amongst others for 116 countries worldwide. Carbon reduction commitments and low gas prices relative to other fossil fuels have made natural gas more attractive for power generation and transportation. Overall consumption of natural gas has been growing worldwide. In emerging economies such as China and India domestic supply has not been able to meet growth in demand. More countries are importing natural gas. Increasingly this natural gas is being transported over longer distances. Thus, the transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) has been outpacing growth in the trade of natural gas via pipelines, which is more expensive.
