Review for second edition: The gap filled by the book under review is therefore valuable and shows an in-depth appreciation of the challenges with an array of possible solutions from experts in their respective fields.
As most of the books form this publisher, the book is written by leading practitioners. As such it covers relevant and cutting-edge topics. The book includes chapters on LNG trading, LNG master sale and purchase agreements, US LNG and the global market, portfolio LNG, shale gas for LNG, price reviews, LNG regulation (in US and EU), floating LNG and so on.
From its regional beginnings, the business of liquefied natural gas (LNG) has been transformed into a broad industry that now spans the globe. The production and liquefaction of natural gas and its shipping, regasification and use bring together diverse producer and consumer jurisdictions as well as international oil companies and trading businesses, under many different forms of contractual arrangement.
This practical title is being updated to take into account the rapidly shifting arrangements and participations in the international LNG sector. It features contributions from leading oil and gas companies, consultancies and law firms, by writers who are specialists in their fields. The content spans the latest developments in traditional LNG matters such as structuring projects, sale and purchase agreements and shipping, as well as chapters on LNG from shale and unconventional sources, the forced reopening of contract terms over time and the growing role of smaller and floating LNG developments. Together, the contributors provide a rare guide to the legal, regulatory, political and practical elements of today’s LNG business.
Whether you are a lawyer in private practice or from a national or international oil company, utility business, ship broking or ship building firm, bank or energy advisory practice, this commercially focused title will provide you with the latest holistic insights into the business and law of LNG.
