Black & Veatch’s new floating solutions leader identifies floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) technologies as viable route to gas industry growth
SINGAPORE, August 15, 2019 /3BL Media/ – LNG technologies, such as floating LNG (FLNG) innovations, driven by its shorter construction lead times and lower capital investment costs, are increasingly becoming a viable option for increased gas deployments. FLNG helps mitigate siting constraints that shore-based infrastructure may face.
At the same time, the continued need for a balanced power generation portfolio as well as the need to address energy security and environmental concerns are driving rapid growth in the gas industry.

A recent article in Bloomberg New Energy Finance predicts that two-thirds of the world’s power will be generated by renewable resources by the year 2050. This projection is based on the continuing growth of new renewable power generation projects, primarily wind and solar, over the next thirty-plus years. Conditions have certainly changed since New Alternatives Fund entered the investment world in September 1982.
The advantages of deploying microgrids are abundant, with sustainability and reliability leading the charge. These are easy to communicate on a community level, but have more specific benefits when installed at military applications. Following on from U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) initiatives aimed at deploying more renewable energy, the cost-savings, distributed energy resource (DER) applications and energy security benefits be gained cannot be overlooked.
In Part 1 of this blog, I discussed the importance of diversifying our country’s transportation fuels in order to improve our national and economic security.
At Waste Management, we’re doing our part.
Four years ago, our entire fleet of about 18,000 heavy-duty collection trucks (the largest fleet of this type of heavy-duty truck in the U.S.) was reliant on fuels derived from oil. Today, we have reduced that number by almost 20 percent and are continuing to add more vehicles that run solely on natural gas.
General Motors Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson addressed the Securing America’s Energy Future summit Wednesday on the 40th anniversary of the 1973 Arab Oil Embargo. His prepared remarks follow. As always, the speaker’s words are definitive.
Good afternoon and thank you for that kind introduction.
On behalf of the General Motors team, I would like to thank Fred Smith and SAFE for inviting me to participate in this vital conversation.
