Asian LNG trade flows: A snapshot

A snapshot of LNG trade flows in Asia and an assessment the progress of the region’s export projects.

Report summary

Asia’s LNG trade flows are in a state of flux caused by a large amount of new export capacity hitting the market at a time when demand for the fuel is stagnating. What will happen to all this supply and where new sources of demand will open up are two of the key questions facing the industry.

Interfax Global Energy’s new special report, Asian LNG Trade Flows: A Snapshot, provides an insight into the changing trade patterns and key market developments in the region. Our experienced energy journalists and expert analysts look at how many of the established industry conventions are being broken down. The report examines how buyers are exerting their power in an oversupplied market to renegotiate contracts and encourage the adoption of new pricing. It analyses the impact that declining demand in key markets will have on trade flows and looks at from where new sources of demand may emerge.
