Course Overview

This course provides a critical understanding of the global dynamics of natural gas and its burgeoning transport via the LNG value chain, including market implications and technological developments. LNG is the mode of transport of natural gas from production areas to major market areas beyond the reach of pipelines. Nearly 75% of the top ten largest projects in the world today are LNG projects. This course will provide a thorough understanding of LNG history, the current state of development and case studies as well as a look into the future of LNG and its relation to the energy industry.

      • Natural gas fundamentals (exploration, processing, production, infrastructure, markets).
      • Overview of the LNG industry (global gas facts, LNG market, history, full cycle case study).
      • LNG value chain (gas field, liquefaction plant/train, shipping, regas terminals).
      • Technology developments (cryogenic materials, heat exchangers, environmental and safety issues).
      • LNG infrastructure (existing and new projects, export / import, emerging economy case study).
      • World market implications (pricing, supply overhang, growing gas utilization, geopolitics).
      • Future trends (developing and new plays, alternative fuels comparison, past peak oil consumption).
    • This course is intended for general audiences. Ideal for professionals seeking to gain a fundamental understanding of natural gas and LNG in the energy industry. Program assumes little to no previous knowledge of gas markets and the LNG industry including related technologies. Attendees may also be new entrants to the oil and gas industry who seek to learn more about the rapidly-developing LNG option for the world.
