  • This paper reports that the Asia-Pacific region remains the centerpiece of a booming world trade in liquefied natural gas. Biggest growth in LNG demand is expected from some of the region's strongest economies such as Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, Key LNG exporters such as Brunei, Malaysia, and Indonesia are scrambling to implement projects to meet that expected demand growth. Uncertainties cloud the outlook for Far East LNG trade, Australia, for one, is more cautious in pressing expansion of its LNG export capacity as more competing LNG expansions spring up around the world, notably in the Middle East and Africa.
  • The world nations, have in general, inadequately explored and under-utilized nonrenewable fuels (e.g., coal, oil shale, and uranium) resources and renewable fuels (e.g., forest and crop residues). It is proposed to use these fuels as transition sources of energy until adequate alternatives for the present conventional fuels are developed and commercialized. This paper discusses the availability and potential of the global resources of transition fuels, the available technology to produce substitute fuels, and an assessment of the cooperative research and development needed to transform projections into practice. Estimates of fuel resources (coal, natural gas, petroleum, shale oil, and uranium) remainingmore » and recoverable are tabulated. Data on energy consumption are also included. (DC)« less
