Career opportunities in Liquified Natural Gas (LNG)
LNG is natural gas in a liquid state. Natural gas is an important source of energy across the world. In some countries, it’s even ahead of coal, nuclear and renewable options as an essential energy source.
Demand for LNG imports is increasing, especially in Asia, as it is considered a transition fuel that can help in the move to a low-carbon future. With a number of LNG projects underway and planned, we are seeing consistent demand for LNG specialists.
