Free eBook: Agile Solutions for LNG by 2024
Between now and 2022, it is estimated there will be 132 billion cubic meters of LNG production capacity added globally – that’s 5% more than the total annual gas demand of Japan.
While the world continues to demand more reliable and affordable energy, it also expects the oil & gas sector reduce its CO2 emissions. This video highlights five technologies that help meet this dual challenge.
Liquid hydrogen took the U.S. into space and onwards to the moon. 50 years on, hydrogen is once in focus – this time as a source of energy that can help mitigate climate change by dramatically reducing CO2 emissions from power stations.
The US became a net exporter of natural gas for the first time in early 2018, after more than 60 years as a net importer. As it continues to build out this position the biggest impact of US LNG will be in aiding global economic growth, particularly in Asia, where demand is accelerating rapidly.
Hydrogen is on the agenda at this year’s Gastech Conference in Houston, Texas. In this article, Professor Kakaras argues that hydrogen and other Power-to-‘X’ technologies will be an essential part of the effort to decarbonise society.
The technology exists to produce liquid fuels like methanol from renewable energy sources and blend with petrol or replace it altogether, creating a cleaner fuel with lower emissions. This year’s Gastech conference in Texas will provide a valuable forum to reflect on the latest developments.
As industry leaders focus attention on large-scale natural gas turbines, flexible aero-derivative turbines are proving to be an effective tool for projects that large-scale generators might not otherwise be able to service.
