1. Introduction

  • Background:Expanding the use of LNG
  • LNG is a regularly supplied, globally traded, and relatively clean fossil fuel.
  • Expanding the use of LNG is a strategy for addressing the requirements embodied in the Kyoto Protocol for many APEC Member Economies.
  • The APEC Energy Security Initiative, recommendations endorsed at the 5th Meeting of the APEC Energy Ministers on 23 July 2002, recognized natural gas as an important non-petroleum means to fill energy needs from supply side, and recommended that cross-border trade barriers to be lowered.
1 introduction
1.Introduction
  • In the Sixth Meeting of APEC Energy Ministers on 10 June 2004, the Ministers declared that the region’s move towards a more diverse energy mix includes a growing demand for natural gas, through cross-border pipelines and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)…
  • The Best Practice Principles of “Facilitating the Development of LNG Trade in the APEC Region” includes a section on public education about LNG.
  • The recommendation of APEC LNG Workshop (held in Chinese Taipei) in March 2005 indicates LNG public information and education as one of the topics for future workshops and APEC Gas Forum (APGAS).

1.Introduction

Background:Initiative Submission

  • Obstacles to the development of LNG caused by either lack of understanding or misunderstanding.
  • The LNG Public Education and Communication Information Sharing Initiative was initially circulated to APEC Member Economies in August 2005 and was endorsed at the 30th Energy Working Group meeting (EWG30) in Ulsan, Korea.
  • APEC energy ministers in their joint statement for the 7th meeting (EMM7) in Gyeongju, Korea encouraged Member Economies to implement the Initiative.

1.Introduction

Objectives

The purpose of this Initiative is to establish a mechanism for APEC Member Economies to share information on public education and communication in relation to LNG infrastructure.

Potential Benefits

  • Improve public understanding of the benefits and safety of LNG.
  • Gain insights to successful communication with the public on LNG projects.
  • Increase the probability of successful LNG projects.
  • Shorten completion time of LNG projects
  • Smooth the operation and maintenance of existing LNG facilities

Tasks

1. Develop LNG Public Education and Communication Information Classification Scheme

Develop a classification scheme on LNG public education and communication for use as the framework for organizing the information in the website.

2. Collect and Classify Literature on LNG Risks and Other Public Concerns

Collect and classify existing reports and documents on public perceptions concerning LNG safety and security risks from the open literature.

2.Overall Implementation Framework

3. Proceed to Case Studies and Integration

  • Develop case studies documenting the experiences of major oil and gas companies in APEC Member Economies, particularly with respect to the process of constructing and operating an LNG receiving station, focusing on the public education and communication aspect
  • Integrate the case studies on LNG public education and communication in relation to LNG related construction, provided by interested Member Economies.

4. Set up Internet Website

Establish a website and post the information collected in the above according to the classification scheme developed in Task 1. The website will be open to public viewing and a mechanism will be established to enable Member Economies to review and analyze related topics.

5. Conduct workshop(s)

Organize workshops on LNG public education and communication, and related topics. This would allow wider communication of the issues and experience sharing.

3. 2006 Implementation Plan

Details of the five Tasks to be conducted in 2006 are:

Task 1:Develop LNG Public Education and Communication Information Classification Scheme

3. 2006 Implementation Plan

Task 2: Collect and Classify Literature on LNG Risks and Other Public Concerns

  • Collect and classify relevant literature in accordance with the scheme developed in Task 1 to avoid “NIMBY” effect.
  • Post literature on website established for this Initiative.

Task 3: Proceed to Case Studies and Integration

  • Expect APEC Member Economies that have built LNG production, loading, transporting, receiving, and conversion facilities to document their respective cases, experiences, and lessons in detail.
  • Envision each interested Member Economy would volunteer to provide at least one case study for 2006 so that the information can be incorporated into the Initiative’s website and be presented to the LNG workshop being planned.

Task 4: Set up Internet Website

  • Set up an internet web site for the LNG Public Education and Communication Information Sharing Initiative to provide a platform for sharing the relevant experiences.
  • provide project developers in APEC Member Economies and others with relevant information to address NIMBY complaints
  • alleviate the potential adverse impacts on the progress and completion of the projects concerned.

Task 5: Conduct Workshop(s)

  • Hold at least one workshop on subject areas related to the LNG Public Communication Initiative each year within the implementation period in venues located in APEC Member Economies.
  • For 2006, coordination is being given to working with the Expert Group on Clean Fossil Energy (EGCFE) on holding a workshop in conjunction with the 31st EWG meeting in May in Singapore and/or in association with the completion of one EWG project study.
  • Envision EGCFE will work with Chinese Taipei to submit a project proposal to obtain APEC funds for supporting interested Member Economies to hold LNG public communication workshops in 2007 and possibly 2008.
