More than ever, energy is at the heart of debates.

Beyond economic and environmental considerations, national energy policies, once the realm of a few experts, have become a matter of societal choices.

Today, our world must seek less abundance and a more informed use of energy. In this context, natural gas plays a crucial role, yet unknown to the general public.

Gas in Focus aims at shedding light on the role of natural gas in this transitional period by providing public access to consolidated, enlightening and reliable information.

Thanks to the expertise of its founding members, GRTgaz and Sia Conseil, this natural gas “observatory” positions itself as a leading guide in this sector. It is composed of five information units: Infrastructures, Uses, Environment, Markets and Supply.

The LNG supply chain

What is LNG ?LNG, which stands for Liquefied Natural Gas, is natural gas that has been converted to a liquid state by cooling to below -163°C. In this form, it occupies 600 times less space than before cooling, while retaining the same calorific value. This makes transport much easier.Setting up a LNG chain requires investment in several types of facility:- Exploration, to detect deposits of natural gas (which are generally discovered during oil exploration operations) and extraction/production- Storage then liquefaction, to convert the natural gas from “gaseous” to “liquid” form in which it can be transported by tanker- Transportation by...
