This makes for some ripe investment opportunities, but which company is best suited for your portfolio? The stable, long-term LNG contracts at Teekay LNG Partners (NYSE: TGP  ) or GasLog (NYSE: GLOG  ) are one option, or you could go with the more special situations such as chemical feedstock specialist Navigator Holdings (NYSE: NVGS  ) or the one-stop shop for LNG at Golar LNG (NASDAQ: GLNG  ) .

The following presentation will help you better understand the basics of the LNG shipping industry. It will take you through the basics of what you need to look for in a LNG tanker company, as well as what differences between these companies could mean for you as an investor.

    I see that you mentioned Asia as a customer for nat. gas. China has the most nat. gas on the planet, but different technology will be required to extract this abundant nat. gas. The rocks are harder than the shale in the U.S. China"s fracking results have failed miserably. they have a contract with gasprom for many years to supply the gas that they were unable to supply. this news will increase the need for more nat. gas carriers. the fact that they are now making synthetic oil from nat.gas, and gasoline from nat. gas could also be a factor.
