Editorial Reviews

Review

“Energy is on the front burner and will stay there, so this book has special value. Read it and learn about the topic of today and tomorrow and tomorrow.” George P. Shultz United States Secretary of State, 1982-1989

"The coming phase of energy industry development is bringing with it the rapid globalisation of the gas business. Long term take-or-pay contracts, which align supply and demand and which formed the foundation of all successful projects in the past, are coming under pressure from liberalisation. But security of supply still depends on security of demand: this timely and authoritative study demonstrates that, if gas is to fulfil its enormous promise as an energy source, new ways must be found to establish the confidence of both sides that secure supply will be matched by reliable demand." Frank Chapman CEO, BG Group plc

“This is a very valuable addition to the global literature on energy issues and energy policy. Natural gas markets have tightened around the world. As I write today, Russia and the Ukraine have been embroiled in a sharp, market-shaking disagreement regarding long- and short-term gas deliveries needed in Europe, causing Germany suddenly to question its growing reliance on Russian gas supplies. The implications of this globalizing gas market for the United States - for homeowners and businesses who have depended on a stable domestic gas market for decades - are huge. Natural Gas and Geopolitics goes deep into the global gas policy issues that affect critical US energy policy, not only looking backward but helping understand what may happen as the global natural gas market develops.” Bill Richardson, Governor of New Mexico United States Secretary of Energy, 1998-2001

Book Description

Global consumption of natural gas is generally expected to double by 2030. However, in the areas of highest-expected demand, the consumption of gas is expected to far outstrip indigenous supplies. This book explores the political challenges which may accompany a shift to a gas-fed world.
