The U.S. is on its way to becoming the number one global Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exporter. U.S. LNG exports will play a vital role in reducing Europe’s dependence on Russian natural gas as the Russia-Ukrainian War continues. Climate change effect in Europe, Asia and Latin America are also bullish for U.S. LNG exports.

During this 1.5-day course, attendees will receive a comprehensive understanding of the LNG supply chain, types of infrastructure, costs, siting and safety regulations, and markets for LNG. We will also discuss how an LNG plant operates (import, storage, and vaporization) and types of vessels used to transport LNG. Attendees will have a better understanding of the relationship between U.S. shale gas and LNG, as well as the latter’s role as a fuel for the 21st century.

Attendees will also learn about inland and offshore LNG import and export terminals and LNG peak shaving plants used to mitigate temporary natural gas supply and price risks. LNG bunkering and greening LNG cargos will also be discussed. The course will address the roles played by the Department of Energy, FERC, PHMSA, and USCG in siting and safely operating U.S. LNG projects. Attendees will learn about LNG pricing mechanisms, sales purchase agreements, how LNG is priced for domestic use, and natural gas and LNG futures contracts used to hedge risk.

Energy, financial and commodity analysts, engineers, environmental consultants, regulators, agencies, and investors that are new to the LNG industry will have a firm foundation that they can apply quickly to their jobs.
