Interview with DavidColson, Commercial VP, Gaztransport and Technigaz, GTT SA
Natural gas has many environmental advantages compared to oil or coal-produced electricity including the reduction in CO2 emissions as well as other environmental benefits such as a massive reduction of NOx which contributes to a better climate globall
These are exciting times for the LNG industry with new technologies being adopted for liquefaction and regasification, and as LNG is increasingly used in small-scale applications, particularly in transportation.
The introduction of LNG in the Netherlands as an alternative fuel for road transport, inland waterway transport and coastal shipping is expected to generate an extra 2.7 billion euros in economic growth and create thousands of jobs between now and 2030
With floating regasification becoming ever more popular, and floating liquefaction fast approaching reality, the LNG industry has been working hard to develop the technologies needed to transfer cargoes between ships – safely and efficiently.
