Liquefied natural gas (LNG) provides a means to transport natural gas via LNG carriers allowing access to markets where the notion of building gas pipelines would not be feasible, or commercially unviable. The overall rise in demand for clean energy sources and the relatively competitive prices of natural gas have led to a rise in global LNG trade over the past few years. As the global markets continue to rely on oil and gas for a major share of their energy requirements, the demand for LNG will continue to grow for the foreseeable future.
