The role of natural gas in the global energy mix has witnessed a remarkable evolution in the past few decades. As a potential alternative to crude oil or coal, it has become a vital component of global energy production in the battle to lower carbon emissions. The dependence of entire regions on singular producers, notably the dependence of Europe on Russia, has held major influence on the structure of geopolitical relationships. Unconventional sources of natural gas have revolutionized the exporters and importers in the market, remaking the United States into a source for natural gas. In this context of rapid changes in the energy market and shifts in geopolitical relationships, The Future of Natural Gas: Markets and Geopolitics provides a comprehensive and rigorous analysis on the role of natural gas in the future global energy mix.
