  • EPRINC and IEEJ Co-Host Third US – Japan LNG Workshop

    IEEJ and EPRINC are in the third year of a joint assessment of the future role of LNG in Asian power and fuel markets. The effort has been supported by both METI and DOE and is part of the Japan-United States Strategic Energy Partnership (JUSEP). It remains an important joint initiative in supporting the growth of LNG in the Asia Pacific region.

    Among the more important objectives of this joint effort are identifying recent trends and longer-term uncertainties in Asian natural gas markets, proposing joint policy initiatives, and highlighting the critical role of U.S. LNG exports in serving those markets. To this end, EPRINC and IEEJ have co-hosted a workshop that included presentations and discussion on the U.S. LNG value chain, opportunities and challenges for financing the expansion of U.S. LNG exports and the development of new regasification facilities in Asia. The program also explored strategies to bring more liquidity to the financing of U.S. LNG exports.

    The workshop presentations and accompanying discussion will contribute to the final joint IEEJ-EPRINC report and recommendations. These findings and recommendations will be presented at the 8th Annual Producer Consumer Conference on September 28, 2019 in Tokyo, Japan. The agenda for the workshop can be found here, the presentations given that day are here, and the photos from the workshop are here.

    A subsequent workshop was held in Jakarta on August 22, 2019. The presentations from that workshop can be found here.

EPRINC Welcomes A. Liang as a Distinguished Fellow
EPRINC is fortunate to announce the addition of A. (John) Liang, Founder and CEO of Edge Consulting as a Distinguished Fellow. Mr. Liang is a graduate of Nanjing University, has a long publication record, and has close ties to the broader Nanjing academic community. He has undertaken several assessments evaluating energy development and trade flows between the U.S., Europe, and China. Before founding Edge Consulting, he worked for several years for a Fortune 500 company. Of special interest to EPRINC is Mr. Liang’s extensive knowledge of trade flows in critical energy commodities, including LNG, crude oil, and petroleum products.  As EPRINC heads into its third-year assessment of the “Future of Asian LNG,” gaining an understanding of actual developments on the ground in China, from regulatory changes to new demand patterns, will provide a unique perspective on China’s role in world oil and gas markets. Mr. Liang’s firm provides extensive support for trading operations, consulting services, and international business support for Chinese firms and their trading partners.
