Insight, commentary and interviews with leading experts on natural gas matters.
NGW is a platform dedicated to provide natural gas stakeholders with access to world class content: comprehensive coverage of the latest natural gas, LNG and energy transition developments, expert analysis, complemented with thought leadership events for in-depth engagement and discussion of the most topical issues affecting the natural gas community.
Lessons From The Global Energy Crisis
The debate over the role that gas should play in the energy transition has been brought into sharp focus in recent months as a global energy crisis has unfolded. While some argue that the shift from hydrocarbons should be accelerated in light of recent events, others caution that further investment in oil and gas is fundamental to delivering energy security and economic prosperity.
The Case for LNG in Shipping
Steve Esau, general manager at LNG bunkering association SEA-LNG, makes the case for LNG as the best available solution for decarbonising shipping while keeping the sector competitive. He also responds to criticism over the methane emissions associated with LNG bunkering, and comments on what the recent gas price spike might mean for the fuel’s perception as affordable.
21st Century Energy, 21st Opportunity - Webinar
- What can the upstream/midstream and downstream do to collaborate and drive further natural gas innovation? What specific markets holds the most opportunity (residential, industry, LNG export, etc?). - What is the single biggest barrier to natural gas innovation and what is the top solution? - Have net zero emission reduction targets changed the scope and nature of the innovation investments across the gas value chain?
A Methodology for Methane
The IEF’s chief economist Leila Benali discusses with NGW the forum’s new initiative to create a uniform methodology for quantifying methane emissions.
Methanation: turning green power into gas
We are joined by Mich Hein, CEO of Electrochaea, to discuss the ins and outs of a proprietary bio-methanation technology that the company has developed. The process involves using captured CO2 and green hydrogen to produce synthetic natural gas that can help decarbonise difficult-to-abate industries. The technology has gained serious attention, with Electrochaea recently bringing on board international oilfield services provider Baker Hughes as a lead investor.
Overcoming the Arctic Drilling Challenge
The Arctic has been hailed as the future of Russia’s oil and gas industry. But developing the vast reserves found there is no easy undertaking. In our webinar, Overcoming The Arctic Drilling Challenge, we discuss the technological, logistical and climatic difficulties that operators and contractors in Russia’s far north must confront, as well as what development prospects there are for the region’s many trillions of cubic metres of natural gas resources.
