But a surge in project costs could put the brakes on the bonanza for gas producers, he said.

Still, advances in technology and the development of high-cost gas pipeline projects in the former Soviet Union and Russia mean that LNG may not always forever remain the more expensive option in delivering gas. Source: Reuters
