Environment and Goals

Sustainability issues in the LNG value chainThe international market is opening up for new environmentally friendly solution, and use of LNG is one step on the way and a part of the energy mix to a cleaner energy society. In Many Countries coal and oil are the main sources of energy. However, this picture is changing due to:

  • A need to diversify energy sources to improve energy supply security;
  • Significant undeveloped gas resources in the region. Many more LNG terminals are planned, and networks of natural gas pipelines are on the rise;
  • There are national and international agreements to reduce greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Oil is a more valuable source of raw material to the petrochemical industry;
  • Natural gas pipeline networks are being built and extended. However, there are many areas that still don’t have access. Gas will likely be distributed as LNG, and via small-scale LNG ships and trucks to get closer to the end-users.

Compared to use of Marine Diesel Oil and Heavy fuel oil, use of LNG will give a reduction of CO2 Emission with 30%, and there will be no emissions of NOx and Sox and particles. In many large cities, the environmental issues with large pollution from power stations can be reduced significant by using LNG, or in the future also use of LBG (Liquefied Bio Gas). The Network LNG Norway - Main Goal and Ambitions;

  1. To Increase export, delivery of equipment and services from the Norwegian LNG cluster into existing and new markets
  2. Establish stronger alliances between the Norwegian LNG cluster for strengthen the capability for larger international projects.
  3. Share Knowledge about markets and development in the LNG sector in different countries and regions.
  4. Culture understanding in new markets 
  5. Arrange seminars / working meetings in Norway
  6. Arrange seminars and workshops internationally in different markets

Selection of marketsThe project will monitor the market situation, find most relevant and promising business case and find the best strategy for entering each of the selected markets. The group has already got input from several countries, in Europa, Asia, Africa and Americas.
