Oil & Gas: Global gas and LNG services
Global supply and demand for unconventional gas and LNG is growing rapidly in industrialized and emerging economies due to the favorable economic, operational, and environmental features of natural gas compared to liquid and solid fuels. This growth and a wide “shale spread” between low North American and higher worldwide gas prices are impacting the industry’s economics and commercial practices.
