Does Germany need LNG?
Does Germany need LNG?

Proposals to build a German LNG import terminal have gathered momentum, but does the country need its own supply of LNG?

Going with the tide: Revitalising the Western Canadian energy sector
Going with the tide: Revitalising the Western Canadian energy sector

I am sure many people would agree that Liquefied Natural Gas is the one hydrocarbon product that could have the single largest impact on the petroleum industry and the Canadian economy. It is therefore critical that we as an industry have access to tidewater and new markets for our natural gas. The exporting of LNG will also aid in reducing global greenhouse gas emissions by using it to replace carbon-intensive coal energy in other countries.
