By implementing small scale energy projects using LNG, we’ll be able to offer, for the first time, a supply of clean energy to rural regions and increase the population’s standards of living. Today we’re talking about a ‘virtual’ pipeline – we don’t need to build long gas pipelines to supply gas across a long distance – we can build modest gas supply ships and ensure LNG deliveries. We should think not just about economic value and profits, but about human impact. We must put people first. By launching small scale LNG energy projects, we can reduce poverty and facilitate the development of manufacturing in rural regions — Alan Lau, President Director, PT Anglo Euro Energy Indonesia.
Current government policy is focused on improving the island’s environmental situation. Green technology and the use of liquified natural gas have been identified as promising avenues of development. Sri Lanka is transitioning to clean sources of energy and intends to gradually reduce dependence on coal. Although the country’s economy is small, we have a large potential for growth, so LNG deliveries may rise to a significant volume — Merrille Godfrey Abeywickrama Goonetilleke, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Power and Renewable Energy of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka.
LNG has many advantages – a reduced environmental footprint, convenient transport – so in large part, the growth in LNG consumption is the result of a transition from coal power plants to gas — Liao Xianchun, Professor, Research Institute of Green Development, Jinan University.
From the point of view of infrastructure and economic opportunities for delivering gas along pipelines, the delivery of these natural resources (LNG) is very promising. The LNG market in the Asia-Pacific has been growing recently — Liu Hongpeng, Director, Energy Division, United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP); The Global Energy Prize Expert.
