The global LNG trade grew by 8% in 2018, with volumes traded exceeding 300 mt for the first time, according to statistics from the International Group of Liquefied Natural Gas Importers (GIIGNL). Asia saw the largest growth in imports, with a 13% year-on-year increase, and represented 76% of global LNG demand.
