My technical division will be hosting a talk on the 12th December, 2015. It is worth 2 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The talk will be presented by Ir. Ahmad Rafidi Mohayiddin. And please stay for the AGM.
Natural gas is one of the important fuels in the energy mix. Its popularity is due to its clean and efficient burning properties besides being friendly to the environment. Technological advancement in the last few decades has allowed this natural gas to be liquefied into smaller volume and transported over long distances to buyers. The world commercial trade of liquefied natural gas (LNG) started booming in the 1970’s. In Malaysia, LNG has been a significant export product of the country since the early 80’s.
The talk will provide an insight into LNG to those interested to understand what it is all about. An overview of the processes in the gas exploitation and processing into its liquid form and the infrastructures needed by the LNG sellers and the buyers will also be shared. In addition, the audience will be acquainted with the challenges facing the county’s LNG industry in the current low world oil price and the latest developments in the race to monetize stranded gas fields.
