Phase II: The Future of LNG for the US and Gulf Coast Economies

The continued growth of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production and long-distance trade has traditionally been taken as a given by global energy analysts, who have premised their positive estimates on gas being both relatively scarce and demand for it virtually unquenchable. Unfortunately, current conditions in the global energy market suggest that what many have predicted as a near perpetual increase in the volume of traded LNG is in fact a bubble that is now in the process of bursting.
