LNG: Driving global gas growth & improving flexibility

  2. 2. Natural Gas – Outlook for the next 5 years  Gas demand is in the fast lane, thanks to its flexibility & ability to ease environmental problems  Global gas markets are being re-shaped by three major structural shifts  China becoming the world’s largest natural gas importer  US gas production and LNG exports rising dramatically  Industry displacing power generation as the leading source of growth  The future of LNG remains bright, but it is not without challenges  Price competitiveness – especially in emerging markets  Market rigidities persist & oil price exposure remains a concern
  3. 3. © OECD/IEA 2018 Strong growth in LNG imports is driven by Asia LNG trade grows at almost three times the rate of global gas demand; China is the main contributor to growth, driven by policy targets to reduce local air pollution LNG imports by region, 2013-23 3 0 100 200 300 400 500 2013 2015 2017 2019 2021 2023 bcm Europe and others Japan Korea Other Asia ChinaAsia

  5. 5. © OECD/IEA 2018 Conclusions  Over the next 5 years, demand for gas to grow strongly & LNG even faster, led by Asia  LNG flexibility improving with more destination-free exports & shorter contracts, yet fixed destination and oil-indexation still prevalent  Natural gas can contribute to a sustainable energy future & facilitate a shift to a hydrogen economy  New investment along the entire natural gas value chain is critical to enhance flexibility & security of supply – as outlined in the IEA’s Global Gas Security Review 2018 released today  The IEA is committed to close cooperation & dialogue with gas producers & consumers to improve transparency, encourage flexibility & boost resilience 5
