Mexico’s LNG imports could decline as huge pipelines transporting gas from the United States to the northwest and centre of the country come onstream in late 2018 and early 2019, Natural Gas Intelligence (NGI) has reported.

“We expect that LNG dependency will decline at a more rapid pace once those pipelines can deliver more US gas to the centre of [Mexico],” a Wood Mackenzie analyst told NGI.

“By 2023, we see LNG playing a relatively small role in [Mexico’s] energy matrix.”
