THE FUTURE MARKET FOR LNG IN THE UNITED STATES
The average cost of fuel oil, natural gas, coal and nuclear fuel delivered to steam electric generating plants in the United States is shown. Prognoses for United States energy supply and demand are given, and the role of domestic and imported natural gas is dealt with in some detail. LNG will begin to increase in importance as projects now under construction go into operation in 1977-78 and beyond, but natural gas will only account for 8-10%, and LNG for only 1.5-2% of the total energy consumption in 1985. Order from NSFI as No. 14808.
