New JRC study on Liquefied Natural Gas: advantages and drawbacks

A new report from the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) reveals the likely impact of increased reliance on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and more shipments of LNG to the European Union. The report concludes that LNG may remain an expensive energy option for the foreseeable future, with both affordability and geo-political issues expected to remain key factors in this area of the energy sector. The report is intended as just one source of information in a number of elements to be taken into consideration in the development of EU energy policy.
