Biomass is one of the fastest growing bulk shipping sectors, fuelled mainly by wood pellets coming in to Europe to replace some of the coal used by existing power stations.

The Port of South Louisiana is fortunate to sit where it does, sprawling over 86 kilometres on the lower Mississippi River with a high concentration of facilities located along its banks that can access 33 of the nation’s states via the inland waterway system. With low, stable prices on a copious amount of natural gas, it is a crucial element that makes the Port of South Louisiana very attractive to industries looking to locate to the ‘River Region’.

Conflict in various countries is affecting oil and gas supplies, as well as consumer and investor confidence in gas. However, gas has had the highest demand growth, particularly LNG, as this type of gas is supplied through LNG import terminals, instead of pipelines, to increase security. More and more LNG is being traded on a spot-basis and 20% of LNG is sold in this way per year, with new contracts not limited to single destinations
