    Fuelling ships in the Nordic regions; shale gas fields in the US; vehicle use across the globe; an energy resource to power major cities in China and other developing countries - these are just some of the applications which demonstrate the incredible scope and breadth of the LNG industry.

    Leaders lead and followers follow

    2012-08-29T00:00:00

    At the recent gasworld conference in Singapore I was given the honour of being asked to chair the final session with John Raquet in the Consultants Corner. During the session, a very topical question was raised that I happily took on: how do you stop someone taking your intellectual property?

    Safety valves, numbers and accountants...

    2012-05-23T00:00:00

    So, with this being gasworld’s safety issue, I thought I should write a bit about the subject and in particular, safety valves.

    2011-11-14T00:00:00

    Following on from my visit to China, I spent two weeks in South Korea and Taiwan before moving on to the US. The difference in the need and use of LNG varies greatly in each country, as does the systems needed to digest the food that is served up.
