Practical Options for Natural Gas Monetisation

Practical Options for Natural Gas Monetisation

12th July 2015

A New Study by Gaffney, Cline & Associates

Natural gas is predicted to have a bright future. As the fastest growing fossil fuel almost US$9 trillion is expected to be invested by 2035 in providing future supplies of natural gas.

However, the monetisation of natural gas discoveries can still present a very diverse, and sometimes difficult, set of challenges for resource owners.  Technological developments potentially offer new solutions for monetising gas fields while markets for natural gas and its products continue to evolve with volatile prices observed.  Recent downward trends in energy prices may lead to limitations on capital expenditures on gas projects as companies focus on high-return projects with rapid paybacks.

Against this competitive background GCA presents its new multi-client study "Practical Options For Natural Gas Monetisation".  This study identifies, discusses and compares the relative merits and risks of gas monetisation options and provides a methodology for the identification of the optimal monetisation route.

Why Purchase this Study?

The study provides the reader with:

  • The ultimate primer describing, reviewing and comparing key gas monetisation options at every applicable scale.

  • A study based on practical experience; GCA do not just write about gas monetization - we have a long history of working with our clients to establish practical, workable gas monetisation solutions.

  • A clear understanding of the merits of each scheme and, at the same time, an awareness of the risks.

  • Guidelines to rapidly assess absolute and relative investment costs and project economics.

  • Methodology to compare the different technologies, to appreciate the differing characteristics, and to identify the optimal scheme.

Who Should Purchase this Study?

Practical Options for Natural Gas Monetisation is an indispensable purchase for anyone involved in appraising or developing natural gas resources:

E&P companies - governments - National Oil Companies - Integrated Oil Companies - financiers - economists - EPC companies - resource owners - investors - lawyers
