Liquid Gold: Is LNG the Next Oil?

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationFeatured article


"There's a joke from the early days of the oil business," write Daniel Yergin and Michael Stoppard, in "The Next Prize," an article in Foreign Affairs in 2003. "A geologist reporting back on drilling a wildcat exploratory well says, 'the bad news is that we didn't find oil. The good news is that we didn't find gas'." Little did the early oil tycoons know that natural gas would have the last laugh, thanks largely and ironically to the emergence of its liquefied form, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) -- and no country on earth is currently laughing louder than Japan, the largest importer of LNG in the world.
