Liquefied Natural Gas Studies Another North American Project


Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd. (LNG), the Australian company planning to build plants to liquefy gas in the U.S. and Canada, is considering a third project in North America to take advantage of increasing demand.

Regional price spreads: predicting the future of LNG


By J Robinson | August 26, 2014 12:01 AM

On March 11, 2011, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami devastated a large portion of Japan’s eastern coastline killing nearly 16,000 people and causing infrastructure damage estimated at more than $225 billion. The consequent nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Power Plant ultimately resulted in the closure of all of Japan’s nearly 50 nuclear reactors.

In a move to compensate for lost electric generation capacity, Japanese imports of LNG jumped nearly 23% to 86.7 million mt during the 2012-2013 fiscal year, up from imports that totaled 70.6 million mt during the fiscal year just prior to the disaster.

Su respuesta fue simple: “Transgredan la ley”.

Eso es precisamente lo que hicieron Ken Ward Jr. y Jay O’Hara 164 años más tarde, el 15 de mayo de 2013. Navegaron en un pequeño barco pesquero llamado “Henry David T.” hasta un lugar de la costa de Massachusetts, cerca de la planta Brayton Point, una enorme central eléctrica de carbón construida en 1963 que es la mayor fuente
