About the Book

This book deals with the paradigm that drove the engagement to create LNG production and export plants in Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela in the late 20th and early 21st century, the geo-politics that dominated the process of LNG capacity creation in both Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela and finally it deals with the collapse of the paradigm and its impact on Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela in the 21st century. The book presents a comparative analysis of two entirely different and contradictory paradigms of exploitation of national energy resources namely that of Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela and the game changer that the US shale gas revolution is.
