Topic

Liquefaction plants costs appear to have risen by a factor of 3 to 4 over the last 10 years compared to aLNGplant factor of 2 for the oil and gas industry generally. This has caused concern in the gas industry and a worry that LNG may not continue to be a competitive source of clean energy in the future.

This has caused concern in the gas industry and a worry that LNG may not continue to be a competitive source of clean energy in the future.

The presentation is based on Brian Songhurst’s recent paper written for the Oxford Institute of Energy Studies and addresses the liquefaction plant cost drivers and the reasons why recent projects have escalated so dramatically. It will also address likely future cost trends and suggest ways to mitigate these cost increases.
