South-east Asia gas outlook.
Although traditionally an exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG), South-east Asia is fast becoming a gas demand centre as energy consumption rises, domestic gas production declines and opposition to coal-fired electricity increases.
- South-east Asia’s gas demand will be facilitated by the rise in global LNG capacity.
- Import dependence will renew regional focus on transnational electricity networks and renewables.
- The Pacific basin will become the epicentre of LNG trade.
