• Purpose & Scope

PGC D’s role is to monitor and promote the development of the LNG business.  The committee will study topics of current importance and interest to LNG industry participants and interested stakeholders from other segments of the natural gas industry.  The output of the committee will provide a clear understanding of the global LNG industry and the challenges ahead.  The committee will monitor the LNG business by issuing a report, which will provide historical data on the LNG trade, LNG liquefaction capacity, LNG shipping fleet and re-gasification terminals. In addition the report will highlight emerging trends within each part of the LNG value chain.
