David Wood. LNG TRADE-1: Domestic gas statistics shape LNG policies. Oil and Gas Journal. 105 (37) 1st October 2007.

Natural gas statistics for production, consumption, export capability and proved reserves of each country provide insight into how natural gas industries are evolving relative to each other and why. These statistics also identify and explain the strategies being pursued by governments and national oil companies in countries where the NOCs control their national industries. Reviewing gas and LNG spreads in relation to electricity prices and competing fuels provides insight into the main gas consuming countries.
