Discusses the pros and cons of LNG carriers in moving Arctic gas to southern markets. The cost of building a fleet of LNG carriers may be spread over a number of years, and the work would be a boost to the Canadian ship-building industry. However, the carriers are very expensive and no Canadian ship-yard is ready to build them now. LNG is one of the most dangerous cargoes to handle, and the dangers of accidents, explosions, or of sabotage cannot be eliminated. /CaACAI/
