Americas: Trade

May 2016

Latin American LNG imports are continuing to decline as demand for the fuel drops in Brazil, Mexico and Argentina.

Combined LNG imports by the three countries amounted to 0.93 mt in April, much lower than the 1.24 mt seen in April 2015. LNG imports by Latin America as a whole fell by 20% on an annual basis in April 2016, to 1.29 mt. GGA expects the region’s LNG imports to drop by 17% year on year in 2016, to 16 mt.
