LNG exports are an important compound for economic growth in African countries. Natural gas and LNG development can enable economic development and stimulate further investment in national infrastructure.
This handbook is the result of an effort by a diverse group of global experts who created it in the hope that it can facilitate a shared understanding between government officials and companies about the technical, commercial and economic factors that will spur investment gas and power.
This handbook is intended to impact decision making with intent to develop natural gas. It does not promote any specific business model, but rather promotes better understanding of the stakeholders’ shared aims in developing natural gas and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) projects and opening markets for LNG trade.
