The materials contained in the pages of this compact yet informative report were provided by the Department of Energy of United States in cooperation with the NARUC, standing for the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners. The publication gives some introductory information that shall be known by anyone engaged in the LNG industry in any way, including, of course, the maritime transportation of the liquefied gases.
Nowadays, the natural gas plays a critically important role in the energy supply, significantly contributing in the national environmental and economic plans. As we know, the liquefaction process has been developed and widely implemented in order to allow for easier transportation of the natural gas. Without it, the gas would never get delivered to the destination ports.
The main emphasis in the document has been placed on the United States; however the technical information can easily be applied elsewhere. The authors explain the growing demand of the country in the natural gas, current status of its imports, components making up the LNG chain, essentials of the natural gas production and liquefaction; of course, the safety and security aspects have also been covered in detail.
