From its regional beginnings, the business of liquefied natural gas (LNG) has been transformed into a broad industry that now spans the globe.

This practical title has been updated and features contributions from leading oil and gas companies, consultancies and law firms by writers who are specialists in their fields. The content spans the latest developments in traditional LNG matters such as structuring projects, sale and purchase agreements and shipping, as well as new chapters on LNG from coal seam gas and shale and the forced reopening of contract terms.
