With Liquefied Natural Gas(LNG) gaining traction in Southeast Asia and more often referred to as the ‘transition’ fuel of choice, we’re facilitating training, mentoring, and publication of stories covering the expansion of this industry in the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand.
These stories will provide valuable reportage for the Center for Energy, Ecology and Development and their important climate work in Asia.
