The Economic Appraisal of Natural Gas Projects

Developing countries will make increasing use of their natural gas reserves in the future. Yet in order to obtain full value from the resource, crucial decisions have to be made. These decisions involve huge financial commitments for projects with long lifetimes, and their accuracy can have a major influence on a country’s energy industry – and even on its economic health.

Analysing fully the theoretical issues involved and their practical application, The Economic Appraisal of Natural Gas Projects examines in depth how to conduct an investment appraisal of a natural gas project.

The Economic Appraisal of Natural Gas Projects will be essential reading for anyone within the energy industry involved in making investment decisions, and also for academic economists.
