I learned a lot about the natural gas industry, drilling, fracking, production process, gas storage, pipeline management, LNG import-export process, and their approach to preventing leakage incidents. Although, this is a controversial industry they are trying their best to make it sustainable. Thanks to this course and the instructor Tom Russo, I had a great insight into the natural gas industry and learned a lot which will be very useful if I work for the gas industry in the future.
