Oil, Gas and Energy Law Intelligence (www.ogel.org, ISSN 1875-418X) invites submissions for a Special issue addressing “Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)”. It is eleven years since the last special OGEL issue on LNG was published (OGEL 1 (2006), May 2006). Since then, there has been increasing globalisation of the LNG trade. Natural gas has become the fuel of choice throughout the world, primarily because of its high efficiency and environmental benefits compared to its main fuel competitors: crude oil and coal. LNG is very cost efficient to transport over long distances where pipelines do not exist. Specially designed cryogenic sea vessels (LNG carriers) or cryogenic road tankers are used for its transport. LNG is principally used for transporting natural gas to markets, where it is regasified and distributed as pipeline natural gas. The International Energy Agency (IEA) sees major shifts in global gas trade over next five years: "New liquefied natural gas (LNG) supplies are coming online just as demand growth in some major markets weakens, resulting in major shifts in global gas trade patterns."
The guest editors for this special issue are Kim Talus (UEF Law School) and Katerina Florou (European Commission).
We encourage submission of relevant papers, studies, and brief comments on various aspects of this subject. Topics of interest include:
