LNG to 2030 - A Detailed Review of Future Volumes & Trends
LNG trade volumes are forecast to increase by over 180% by 2020 and by approximately 250% by 2030. The LNG sector is in a period of large-scale expansion.
• Large-scale demand growth
• Emerging new supply sources
• Emerging new import markets
• Increased investment in LNG infrastructure
• Increased contract flexibility
• Speculative LNG carrier newbuilding orders
• Continued increase in average vessel size
• Development of containment and propulsion systems
LNG trade volumes are forecast to increase by over 180% by 2020 and by approximately 250% by 2030. The LNG sector is in a period of large-scale expansion. This Report examines the current and historical development of the LNG trade, detailing the major importers and exporters. By examining the prospects of the individual LNG supply and import markets, detailed analysis is included on future
prospects for LNG trade volumes and structure through to 2030. The development of future trade volumes is also analysed under High and Low growth scenarios. The LNG vessel fleet contains over 260 vessels and will continue to expand as a large number of vessels are delivered in the near-future. This Report further investigates the future extra LNG vessels required throughout the forecast long-term period.
This Report also highlights the recent and future developments within the LNG
• Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO)
• Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU)
• Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)
• The Spot Market
The Report provides invaluable independent analysis on the development of LNG trade and shipping through to 2030 – a period set to witness massive expansion and
change throughout the LNG sector. It represents the most up-to-date and comprehensive examination of the LNG sector prospects and is essential reading for
all parties with an interest in the LNG sector.
TABLE OF CONTENTS :
SECTION 1 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
This Section offers a summary of the principal points emerging from the detailed and extensive analyses. In addition, this Section includes a summary of the most significant points and conclusions emerging from the Report – these are presented in the order of the corresponding Sections for ease of reference.
SECTION 2 NATURAL GAS & LNG TRADES
In recent years there has been a large-scale shift in favour of gas in national energy profiles – this Section examines the development of natural gas within primary energy demand. Natural gas trades, in the form of pipelines and LNG, are presented, highlighting that three of the top 10 international gas trades are LNG. Overall, LNG trade expansion has increased by approximately 65% since 2000. This Section highlights the LNG importing and exporting countries and seaborne trade volumes since 1970.
SECTION 3 LNG FLEET & RECENT DEVELOPMENTS
The world fleet of LNG carriers has reached over 260 vessels, and the growth in capacity will continue to increase at a rapid rate in the near future. The orderbook has a current total of over 120 vessels representing approximately 66% of the existing LNG fleet capacity. This Section examines:
• Fleet developments
• Vessel age profile
• Containment systems
• Country of build
• Fleet operators
• Recent freight rates
• Recent long- and short-term charters
• The secondhand vessel market
SECTION 4 OUTLOOK FOR LNG EXPORT SUPPLIES
This Section details the individual LNG export countries in terms of their evolving development through to 2030. Current and future liquefaction capacity is outlined in each of the main regions of Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, North Africa, West Africa, and Asia Pacific. This includes plans for the development of LNG export capacity in a number of new countries – including, Russia, Peru, Venezuela, Iran, Yemen, Angola and Papua New Guinea.
