Research and Markets: Global LNG Liquefaction and Regasification Capacity Outlook - New Export and Import Facilities to Significantly Alter Global LNG Trade

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mrzgbl/h1_global_lng) has announced the addition of the "H1 Global LNG Liquefaction and Regasification Capacity Outlook - New Export and Import Facilities to Significantly Alter Global LNG Trade" report to their offering.

Natural gas has become the world's energy of choice, with demand growing at more than twice the demand for oil. Natural gas is more environmentally friendly than oil and is replacing fuel oil in power generation and industrial uses.

The global LNG industry is currently witnessing rapid developments at both the supply (liquefaction) and demand (regasification) side. On the liquefaction side, Qatar currently holds the highest LNG liquefaction capacity in the world. However, by 2020, the US, Australia and Canada are expected to become larger centers for LNG liquefaction. On the LNG regasification side, major LNG buyers in Asia are trying to form buyers clubs in order to better negotiate LNG prices. Among the traditional major LNG buyers in the world, the US is set to change its status from a buyer to a supplier of LNG.

The abundance of low cost natural gas in the US and Canada and the recent natural gas discoveries in Mozambique will impact the pricing structure of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) contracts and trade flows. The fracking of gas deposits in the US has resulted in a surplus natural gas position and changed the industry's focus to exporting natural gas via the construction of LNG liquefaction facilities in the US Gulf Coast as well as in the east and west coast areas.
