Gas is redrawing the energy map
Revolutionary advances in technology are opening up vast reserves of natural gas previously out of reach to human exploitation. The second coming of this familiar resource is already redrawing the world energy map. Could natural gas be poised to challenge oil as the most important fuel source on the planet?
