Hydrogen Oil: Green vs Blue, What’s the Difference?

Hydrogen energy is significantly more efficient than fossil fuels. Even more importantly it can be produced in a sustainable way and is considered a "renewable energy" source. Unfortunately, this is not true for all types of hydrogen energy and largely depends on how it is produced.

Europe’s Energy Crisis 2022: Lessons for Asia

Asia is in the unique position to witness the pitfalls of poor energy strategy and how much it costs. If it proceeds to repeat Europe’s mistakes, then Asia has no one else to blame but itself.

The Philippines’ Presidential Candidates 2022 Should Pursue Renewables and Halt LNG

Halting LNG expansion plans may be against the dominant trend in Southeast Asia, but the Philippines' presidential candidates must make the tough decisions if the country wants to mitigate its finance, energy dependence, stranded asset and climate risks.

LNG: The Rise of Liquefied Natural Gas

Liquid natural gas (LNG) is an energy-dense fossil fuel that produces fewer emissions than coal and oil. Many people see it as a "transition fuel" for the global energy transition causing an increase in demand over the past few years. We expect that the upcoming decade will be pivotal in defining LNG's role in the world's future energy mix.

What is LNG Used for?

LNG prices saw record highs in 2021 caused by unprecedented demand. The global impacts of COVID-19 primarily drove the demand, but this appetite for natural gas may continue in the future. Natural gas is a versatile fuel source, and LNG is an effective way to transport it over long distances.

Singapore LNG Hub for Asia: What are the Plans?

Singapore has historically been a hub for petroleum in Asia, acting as a market between the east and the west. With LNG demand surging, they are hoping to play the same role for LNG.

Natural Gas in Bangladesh – Record High Prices and Imminent Climate Impacts

2021 saw record spot pricing for LNG around the world, and Bangladesh took the brunt of these costs. To prevent future impacts from price volatility, Bangladesh and other Asian nations are looking at developing local LNG infrastructure. However, considering the recent IPCC report, Bangladesh needs to rethink its approach to natural gas.

What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Natural Gas?

There are several pros and cons to using natural gas. While it is still a fossil fuel, it produces significantly less carbon dioxide than coal and oil. Yet, on the flip side, poor production practices, leaking transportation pipelines, and extreme price volatility raise questions about if it really is worth investing in.

5 Major LNG Projects to Keep an Eye on in 2022

Increasing demand has been driving up LNG prices since 2021. Experts expect that this demand will continue to grow, and without new LNG infrastructure, demand will outstrip supply. Luckily, several major LNG projects are in progress, and more are expected to follow.

China’s Growing LNG Dependence – Is Increasing Imports the Solution?

In 2021 China became the world's largest LNG importer. This was in response to growing energy demands for economic growth, volatile energy costs, and lower than expected domestic generation. Will this be a sustainable option for China?

JERA’s Vietnam LNG Plans in the Wake of PDP8

Vietnam is undisputedly among the world's best renewable energy success stories. The country needs to continue marching towards sustainability and retain its position as a lucrative market for green investors. However, the looming boom in the local LNG market risks derailing this progress.

Is LNG the Fuel of the Future?

LNG is a valuable power source that can power the transition to renewable energy. Due to its versatility, it has many uses - transportation, heating, and electricity generation. We expect to see a significant increase in LNG access, consumption, and production in the coming decades.

The Global Natural Gas Pipeline Expansion Plans and Climate Impacts

The world is at an inflexion point between speeding up the renewable energy transition and locking itself in fossil fuels. The latest reports make a strong case for the latter.

LNG Prices in 2022 Bring Stability after 2021’s Volatility

Many experts predict that LNG prices will remain relatively high throughout 2022. This comes on the heels of record breaking prices across Europe and Asia in 2021. But what is the longer term outlook?
