As the US and Europe move to cut methane emissions, will the demand pull for cleaner LNG spread to price-sensitive Asia?
Ben Cahill, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, published a report this month looking at how concerns about methane emissions might spread elsewhere in the world, and how the focus on methane could reshape the LNG market.
Cahill argues that it will take some time before the market -- and Asian buyers in particular -- start paying a premium for cleaner gas. But he does believe demand for this so-called differentiated LNG will develop eventually.
