Value Creation: Gas to Power - via LNG import or domestic development?

Value Creation: Gas to Power - via LNG import or domestic development?

25th May 2017

“Gas to Power” can mean different things to different stakeholders.  Here at GCA, we like to look at it in terms of delivering sustainable value across the entire gas value chain from the reservoir to the wire, from molecules to megawatts.  In this presentation, Ryan Pereira (Principal Commercial Manager – Global Gas and LNG) gave an overview of changes in the global gas and LNG market, exploring 5 trends that we expect to transform traditional thinking over the next 15 years.  Ryan explored how a combination of factors are still providing an opportunity for LNG imports to be a fuel of choice. 

Mike Wood (Technical Director – Development Planning), balanced this argument by presenting the case for “stranded” gas development through utilisation of indigenous gas for power development. Mike focused on Africa in terms of assessing netbacks for domestic gas versus imports and showed competitiveness of domestic under specific State take principles.  In a range of projects, GCA considers that both domestic and import options have a role to play, but each project requires bespoke consideration.
