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?

With Steven R. Miles, Energy Sector Chair Baker Botts, Nonresident Fellow, Center for Energy Studies

And Matthew Fusina, Special Counsel at Baker Botts

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.
