The discovery of natural gas has stimulated considerable interest among policy makers in “localizing the boom” through the participation of domestic firms in the value chains of multinational gas companies. Much of the attention has been focused downstream on the potential for gas to serve an input into power generation or directly as feedstock. Building on the Enterprise Map, IGC has worked to encourage a broader view of the potential for domestic firms to participate in the supply chain. Further research including value-chain analysis of various industrial sectors and their potential contributions to the supply chains of multinational gas companies would be welcomed.
