Transportation in a Liquefied Natural Gas Rich World

The University of New Orleans (UNOTI) is conducting several
phases of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) research concerning
the US shale revolution and its effect on the energy sector
and various transportation systems. UNOTI initially assisted
the Port of New Orleans with LNG bunkering research. Phase
II continued with LNG energy policy and export analysis.
Phase III is currently analyzing: (1) challenges to US LNG
exportation, (2) value added alternative LNG uses such as
marine fuel, and (3) potential effects of the shale oil and gas
industry on US transportation systems.
