Guam May Switch to LNG From Oil for Generating Power After 2015

July 11 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Pacific Island territory of Guam is considering a switch to liquefied natural gas for generating power after a feasibility study is completed in 2015.

The Guam Power Authority, the sole power provider on the island, may shift from oil products because more LNG is becoming available from North America, Australia and Papua New Guinea, according to a company official. He asked not to be identified because he isn’t authorized to speak to the media.

The Guam Power Authority burns fuel oil and diesel to generate power, according to the government-owned company’s website. Guam doesn’t import or produce natural gas, data from the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency show.
