The oil industry has often heard itself being criticized from within for not being bolder in sending a broadly positive message about what it does. Hydrocarbons make modern life possible; without them, we’re back to the mid-1800’s. And we should be telling the world that, pushing back against the naysayers. That’s the gist of the criticism.
That wasn’t on display at the World LP Gas Forum in Miami this week, where I was asked to moderate a panel of LPG experts entitled “Mind the Gap.” The gap in this question is the growing surge of LPG supply and the very real question of how it is going to get consumed.
