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 […]
When I was exposed to Sub-Saharan Africa for the first time in 1996, one of the real big problems of the time was keeping in touch with loved ones back in Europe. Telephones were rare and when they existed, lines did not always work and even if they worked, it cost an arm and a […]
This is not my first post on the current oil price dilemma and I have a hunch that there will be more to come in terms of even lower prices. From today’s vantage point it looks a bit like the new ruler of the kingdom has stabilized the slide but nothing could be further from […]
In the mid Nineties, the UK transformed its gas market unleashing liberalization. Competition was about to set customers free, set traders loose and set the scene for the birth of the dominating gas hub of Europe. The National Balancing Point or better known as NBP. The NBP, as its name suggests, originally was a leftover from the […]
Those who have spent the last 10 years in oil and gas were in for the ride of their lifetime. Those who have spent far longer in the industry will look back at the nuttiest 10 years of their entire careers. We have gone from peak fear to boom and now gloom with lots of […]
Most of us will remember from our time at school that life divides into different reigns. One of them belongs to Bacteria, scientifically called Prokaryotes. They are simple singular cell life forms with no cellular core and RNA swimming free in a sack of chemicals. They are the very simplest life forms the broad public […]
2011 I was briefly involved in a project called AGRI – the Azerbaijan, Georgia, Romania Interconnector. I was intrigued, because even if this project was daring and exotic, it had immediate appeal to me. But I underestimated the signs of the time. There were big ticket pipeline projects sucking off much-needed media exposure and political […]
Just imagine it’s Christmas but nobody is there. That’s a bit what LNG for bunkering feels like. It has it all: LNG is cleaner than anything else cutting some cheese with the environmentalists, it’s cheaper than diesel which must make sense to the shippers, and when you put the cost of scrubbing in it even […]
All those interested in Norse mythology (I am sure there are some Thor fans out there) will have a clue on what happens when Ragnarok hits us. It is a series of events that eventually destroys most of everything we know and even many of the gods die. The world reboots on a new setting. […]
So we have lived through the last OPEC meeting in Vienna holding our breath what the oil producers might be doing in order to stop the oil price from falling even lower. The oil price is still not really low right now, let’s not forget this. But it is too low for some who cannot justify […]
One in 3 Arabs worldwide lives on the banks of the Nile river? That makes the oldest culture on earth the Arab heavyweight. Unfortunately, modern Egypt has made the headlines more than once in the very recent past. Not really the kind of news that we would wish this tormented country but believe it or […]
Modern man with all his marvels is roaming the planet because of a simple, yet powerful mechanism called Evolution. It’s simple because it mechanically tries out every possible pathway in order to find what works best. It also eliminates those solutions, that have not worked well. Simple, as this mechanism may be, it yet has ensured […]

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?
