Shell (RDS.A) makes the case for gas, telling the LNG 17 conference global demand for liquefied natural gas will reach 400M metric tons/year by 2020 and 500M by 2025. Gas is the "ideal fuel" to satisfy demand - clean and easy to transport - and will replace coal over the next 20 years, says Shell’s manager of integrated gas strategy. On European LNG demand: "We may be close to the bottom."
