Assessing LNG Potential in South & Southeast Asia

Wednesday, March 13

04:00 pm - 04:50 pm

In total, LNG demand across the South and Southeast Asia region are forecast to reach 45 million tons in 2018, a 20% increase from the previous year. However, sustainable demand growth is increasingly uncertain. Price sensitive buyers in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh are wavering, especially when LNG prices soar, prompting some buyers to renegotiate existing contracts. Within Southeast Asia, new players, driven by market liberalization, will compete to procure supply, complicating the marketing landscape. How have the emerging markets of Asia fared in LNG demand growth over the past decade? What has been learned? How does LNG fit into India’s supply mix? Does LNG have a future where customers are notoriously price sensitive? Which markets in Southeast Asia will import LNG next? What infrastructure developments are taking place? What are the signposts to watch for in these regions?
