Whilst LNG no longer represents the same challenges it did 20 years ago, regarding the immense cost involved in getting LNG from usually deserted location to the area it could be commercially traded and distributed, the variety and number of difficulties involved in LNG operations are still extensive. The industry needs to be kept informed about strategic and technological developments, as well as to constantly look on new benchmarks and find partnerships to maximize the potential of this resource.
