With this comes the ever-present risk of oil supply shortages. But Australia is gas-rich and oil-poor, so it makes practical sense to assess how our own gas resources can be used to produce these fuels. Natural gas can be used directly as a fuel, blended with diesel in modified diesel engines, and converted into a conventional liquid fuel—all at a modest cost. This book, written by Australia’s leading experts in the field, demonstrates how using natural gas as a transport fuel could increase fuel self-sufficiency to 50–70 percent by 2030. And with three-quarters of all freight being moved by road, it’s clear that these developments will have major benefits for Australian transport efficiency.
