Liquified Natural Gas Project Structuring


This practice note discusses structuring of liquified natural gas (LNG) projects. While an LNG project must consider, in varying degrees, all aspects of the LNG value chain, this practice note focuses on the components that differ from other hydrocarbon projects, namely liquefaction, LNG transportation, and LNG regasification. The issues and contracts involved in the upstream and downstream components of an LNG project are comparable to those involved in a crude oil project.
