Title: LNG Demand Growth in Asia
Date: Monday, November 27, 2017
Time: 10:00 AM Greenwich Mean Time
Duration: 1 hour
The Asia-Pacific region is seeing huge arrays of change in its energy industry. Nuclear power plant restarts have created uncertainty on the pace and trajectory of LNG demand in Japan, the world’s largest LNG consumer. At the same time, a new president in South Korea has unveiled ambitious environmental policies, with LNG demand potentially set to benefit. And all eyes in the LNG market remain fixed on China in the near term as year-on-year demand growth in 2017 has been impressive. Meanwhile, demand from new importers, often relying on FSRU technology, is exhibiting strong potential but further growth comes with greater risks than traditional markets.
