Coronavirus pushes wobbly LNG market to the edge

Coronavirus pushes wobbly LNG market to the edge It’s never good when companies start speaking in legalese. China National Offshore Oil Corporation, the country’s leading liquefied natural gas importer, has invoked the legal clause force majeure – which would allow it to suspend contracts because of the deadly coronavirus. China – the world’s second largest importer of LNG – has been responsible for much of the product’s demand growth, meaning the woefully oversupplied market could be in se...

How to plan a trip to Pakistan

For much of the past two decades, Pakistan was hardly thought of as a tourist destination.

Bengaluru is the third largest city in India, located in the middle of the Deccan Plateau in South India. I was in Bengaluru on the way to somewhere else. I visited Bengaluru in 2007 during my first trip to India, so I would have preferred to visit a new city. 13 years between visits is long enough to warrant a revisit, so instead of flying straight through I made a stopover here. With a population of over 10 million people Bengaluru qualifies as a megacity, and that qualifies me to have anoth...
