Global Small-Scale Liquefaction Industry 2016-2020

Natural gas normally accompanies crude oil in oil and gas reservoirs. Earlier, there was no way of tapping the natural gas stream that was produced during crude oil extraction (onshore or offshore). Any such gas was flared off. However, with the advent of advanced technologies and commercialization of natural gas, it started getting stored and supplied to gas stations. One issue faced by the oil and gas industry was the transportation of gas. Eventually, liquefaction of gas became the norm of the industry to reduce its volume and transport it efficiently. Conversion of natural gas from gaseous to liquid form by decreasing its temperature is known as liquefied natural gas (LNG). The analysts forecast global small-scale liquefaction industry to grow at a CAGR of 7.48% during the period 20......
