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.

This webinar precedes the Canadian Gas Dialogues Conference, to be held in Calgary on September 29, 2021. Shannon Joseph (CAPP), Paul Cheliak (CGA) and Jim Campbell (CEPA), moderated by Julie Gaudreau (IGRC 2024) discuss the state of innovation in the natural gas industry during this discussion that touches upon the following topics: - 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.

 

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.

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. Joining us are Vitaly Dokunikhin, CEO of ERIELL Russia, Aleksandr Milenkiy, Chief Engineer ERIELL NEFTEGAZSERVICE, and Mark Gyetvay, CFO of Russian gas producer Novatek.

Recorded July 21, 2021

Mark Gyetvay, CFO of Russia’s largest independent gas producer, discusses how the company is balancing its ambitious LNG growth plans with new decarbonisation initiatives. While the IEA has called for no more investment in gas, Novatek sees the fuel as an integral part of the low-carbon energy future.

Uzbekistan has undergone radical reform in the years since president Shavkat Mirziyoyev assumed power in late 2016. In the natural gas industry, the government has eased conditions for foreign investors and worked to create a more market-driven sector. The Central Asian state is among the largest gas producers in the CIS space, although many of its largest fields were developed in the Soviet era.

In this webinar, Is Uzbekistan Running out of Gas?, we discuss what the future prospects are for Uzbek gas production. Joining us will be Uzbekistan’s Deputy Energy Minister Bekhzot Narmatov, Bakhrambek Ismailov, Head of ERIELL’s Regional Business Unit for Central Asia and Louis Skyner, a partner at Dentons.

Discussion exploring hydrogen and its role in Canada’s energy transition

Join Natural Gas World Americas Editor Dale Lunan, Dr David Layzell, energy systems architect and research director with The Transition Accelerator, and Greg Caldwell, director, utility hydrogen strategy at Alberta gas distributor ATCO, as they discuss the opportunities and challenges of hydrogen in meeting Canada’s energy transition aspirations.

This webinar is part of the Canadian Gas Dialogues Platform.

In this episode, Joseph Murphy, Natural Gas World's Editor in Chief, discusses with Peter Hartley, Ph.D., and Michelle Foss, Ph.D., the contradictions in US energy policy.

Peter R. Hartley, Ph.D., is the George A. Peterkin Professor of Economics at Rice University and a Rice faculty scholar of energy economics for the Baker Institute.

Michelle Michot Foss, Ph.D., is the fellow in energy, minerals and materials at Rice University's Baker Institute, developing policies and conducting research to help build capacity on non-fuel minerals supply chains.

Until recently, natural gas was seen as a climate-friendly “bridge fuel” in the transition to a low-carbon economy. Increasingly however investors and policymakers are viewing natural gas as part of the problem rather than part of the solution. They are putting pressure on market players to do more to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with natural gas activities.

How can players in the LNG industry respond to this challenge?

What they can do is to make their LNG “green” or “greener”. But how? And what exactly does “Green LNG” mean?

And Matthew Fusina, Special Counsel at Baker Botts

In this week’s episode of In a Nutshell, Asia Pacific Energy Research Centre (APERC) vice president Glen Sweetnam and researcher Diego Rivera Rivota join us to discuss the organisation’s latest report on Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) gas markets.

APEC members consume over half of the world’s gas supply and accounted for over two thirds of consumption growth in 2019. We discuss the ongoing trends in these markets, moves towards decarbonisation and how recent events like the cold snap in Asia in December-January and more recently the Texas power crisis have highlight vulnerabilities in gas and power systems.
