The U.S. is on its way to becoming the number one global Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exporter. U.S. LNG exports will play a vital role in reducing Europe’s dependence on Russian natural gas as the Russia-Ukrainian War continues. Climate change effect in Europe, Asia and Latin America are also bullish for U.S. LNG exports.

Attendees of this 2 day course will take away comprehensive knowledge of the LNG industry, from fundamentals:

  • Types of infrastructure
  • Costs
  • Siting and safety regulations
  • Markets for LNG
  • How an LNG plant operates (import, storage, and vaporization)
  • Types of vessels used to transport LNG

To more in-depth topics such as:

  • Inland and offshore LNG import and export terminals
  • How LNG peak shaving plants are used to mitigate temporary natural gas supply and price risks
  • The roles played by the Department of Energy, FERC, PHMSA, and USCG in siting and safely operating U.S. LNG projects
  • LNG bunkering and greening LNG cargos
  • LNG pricing mechanisms
  • Sales purchase agreements
  • How LNG is priced for domestic use
  • How natural gas and LNG futures contracts used to hedge risk
