    Asian Gas: Delivering security of supply

    Gas & LNG

    Across the globe, stakeholders are facing the “trilemma” of energy security, affordability and sustainability as they chart their pathways to a net-zero future. Players in Asia have an even bigger task at hand: its incremental energy consumption between 2023 and 2050 is expected to account for 65% of global energy demand growth to support economic activities. How do recent changes in the global gas market affect the role of gas in Asia’s energy mix? Will Asia continue its term-LNG shopping spree or rely more on the spot markets now that prices have trended down? What do Asia gas importers look for when securing new supply? What can LNG suppliers do to help Asia solve its energy “trilemma”?
