Then Covid-19 happened, triggering massive uncertainties across all energy value chains and stoking significant interest in accelerating energy transitions through green stimulus, especially in the world’s developed economies. What does this mean for the future of LNG? In the energy world of 2020, dominated by dire headlines, are there bright spots? What will drive the LNG market beyond 2020? At this virtual armchair session, Meg Gentle, president and CEO of Tellurian, Inc., and Ken Medlock, Center for Energy Studies Senior Director, discussed the future prospects for LNG.
