I have been writing about LNG in Africa for years now. Remember? Sub-Saharan Africa is going to be one of the most exciting plays in the LNG world for the next two decades. But it’s not going to be a walk in a Japanese garden – more like walking on burning charcoals barefoot. Africans are […]

Its more than 3 years now that I am fighting for some improved quality of life in Austria and Europe and it’s time to take a hard stance. In the end, VW has been caught with its hands in the Cookie jar so what better time could there be? Fine Particulate Matter (PM) is a […]
We all believe that protecting the environment around us is something that must only affect others. Most people could not care less if Polar Bears find a patch of ice to live their life’s on or if the rainforest dies as long as the burgers are big and the beer is cold. Let me spoil […]
Africa – just like many other regions on earth – suffers from a double edged problem. On one side, enormous amounts of natural gas are being flared every single day and this gas comes as associated gas to the surface with the oil that is produced at the same time. And on the other side, […]
Now it’s official. Since September 1st this year, all new diesel vehicles sold in the European Union must comply with the EURO 6 standard. EURO 6 is by any measure the most severe limitation of nasty pollutants that are allowed out of the exhaust shaft of a vehicle in and around the European Union and […]
Good ideas are incredibly frequent and it’s even more astonishing how long they hover around without ever producing any noticeable impact. Most great ideas, that have gone on to change the world, did not do so because the ideas were great to begin with. They did so because there was someone; one single person who […]
In July 2014 I made a wager. I said that before March 2016 (don’t ask me why this date, it just sprung into existence out of nothingness) WTI would go below 28 USD. We have seen a huge slide in the oil price over the last 12 months so I refined my stance in February […]
Who knows what a Stirling engine is? Most of us won’t. Well, I didn’t until about a year ago and when I was explained the principle at its core, I had an EUREKA moment. Let’s go to the fundamentals. Stirling engines work by exploiting temperature differences in order to move pistons that in turn move a […]
A couple of days ago I had a conversation with a trader friend who has migrated into the consulting business. His journey was the result of a bit of involuntary arm twisting to be sure as this was not what he had planned for in his life, but the job market for traders is generally […]
How many times have I written about the implications of shale on oil? For an LNG guy I have a strange obsession with that but look at the fundamentals and the picture is clear. Oil is still the big bully out there and it dominates the entire energy world hands down. So, anything that happens […]
It is difficult not to be stunned by what happens in energy nowadays. Prices were stratospheric for many years and suddenly have dropped to less than half just to regain a little over the last weeks and months. Renegade drillers in the US have shaken decade old certainties and created the shale MasterBlaster. Nothing in […]
There is a German saying. He, who does a voyage, shall have stories to tell. This certainly applies to the LNG business and to any newcomer getting his first chills from it. It’s all exciting but after the first few missteps (oh trust me, there will be plenty) the F-word starts to creep into your […]
Since my earliest days in LNG, I have lived with the specter of Iranian LNG. Iran was always one of the potentially emerging LNG superpowers. Well – sort of at least. Since 1972, when the first concept for an LNG project was conceived until this very day, not one single drop of LNG has been […]
After nearly a decade in LNG I tend to believe that I should have seen everything under the sun – but that conviction turns to shreds just an instant after when I see the next hilarious piece of LNG news. When I started to get serious on the matter in 2005, I quickly realized that […]
The news about the current Nigerian fuels crisis is already spreading beyond the realms of the Gulf of Guinea. It is said that this one is the worst since anyone can think. This is truly not an enviable legacy for the outgoing president Goodluck Jonathan. Could the incoming Nr. 1, president elect Buhari, be more […]

The world is in a double bind. We cannot go on polluting the planet as we have done in the past as it will kill us. Dieselgate has shown us how bad things are in transportation only but this is the tip of the iceberg.
Then again, radical environmentalists with an agenda shove untested, unfit and horribly expensive solutions down our throats. May the taxpayer pay.
Methane is green enough and can be made even greener in time and is economically sound. The technology is tried and tested and the results are proven.
What are we waiting for?
