Natural gas and LNG in the Future of Global Energy

  1. 1. © OECD/IEA 2018 NATURAL GAS AND LNG IN THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL ENERGY Dr. Fatih Birol Executive Director, International Energy Agency IEA World Gas Conference, 26 June
  2. 2. © OECD/IEA 2018 Global oil demand remains robust Global oil demand is set to rise by 1.4 mb/d in 2019, with China and India accounting for almost half of the increase; Petrochemicals are becoming increasingly important drivers of oil demand 0 0.4 0.8 1.2 1.6 2 2005-2014 mb/d 2016 2017 2018 20192015
  3. 3. © OECD/IEA 2018 Renewables accounted for almost half of the growth in electricity generation in 2017 and are set to meet a higher share of the growth going forward Annual electricity generation growth by technology Renewables growing rapidly in the power sector 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 400 450 Renewables Other sources Renewables Other sources Annual average (2000-16) 2017 TWh Other sources Hydro and other renewables Wind Solar PV
  4. 4. © OECD/IEA 2018 Natural Gas – Outlook for the next 5 years n Gas demand is in the fast lane, thanks to its flexibility & ability to ease environmental problems n Global gas markets are being re-shaped by three major structural shifts Ø China becoming the world’s largest natural gas importer Ø US gas production and LNG exports rising dramatically Ø Industry displacing power generation as the leading growth sector n The gas industry’s future remains bright, but it is not without challenges Ø Gas price competitiveness & market reforms in emerging markets Ø Curbing methane leaks along the value chain
  5. 5. © OECD/IEA 2018 Industry has taken over from the power sector as the drivers of gas demand; China accounted for 30% of the increase in global gas demand in 2017 Growth in global natural gas demand Natural gas – life in the fast lane bcm 2000-2016 average 2017 30 60 90 120 Industry, buildings & others Power generation
  6. 6. © OECD/IEA 2018 China dominates world gas consumption growth Global consumption passes the 4 tcm mark by 2022 China to account for almost 40% of growth driven by clean air policy target World natural gas consumption growth for selected countries and regions, 2017-23 6 bcm -20 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 Russia Japan Europe Latin America Africa India United States Middle East China
  7. 7. © OECD/IEA 2018 The United States takes the lion’s share of the growth in global supply The United States accounts for almost 45% of global growth in natural gas production and 75% of growth in LNG exports Natural gas production growth for selected countries and regions, 2017-23 7 -50 0 50 100 150 200 United States Middle East China Australia Russia Egypt Europe bcm Domestic market Export market
  8. 8. © OECD/IEA 2018 2011-17 Power generation Industry Residential and commercial Other sectors Industry surpasses power generation to lead growth Industry accounts for over 40% of the growth in global gas demand to 2023, mainly on greater use for petrochemicals and fertilizers Natural gas consumption growth by sector (%) 8 2017-23
  9. 9. © OECD/IEA 2018 After remaining flat for 3 years, global CO2 emissions rose again in 2017, to an all-time high Global energy-related CO2 emissions After plateauing for 3 years, global emissions are on the rise again CO2 emissions Increase in 2017 5 10 15 20 25 30 35Gt CO2
  10. 10. © OECD/IEA 2018 China was a remarkable success story for electrification, bringing access to hundreds of millions in record time; India achieved electricity access for all its villages in 2018; Today the challenge is concentrated in sub-Saharan Africa Population without electricity access Electrification success elsewhere, but sub-Saharan Africa still remains in the dark 500 1 000 1 500 2 000 2 500 1985 2000 2017 2030 million Rest of World Sub-Saharan Africa India China
  11. 11. © OECD/IEA 2018 Conclusions n The versatility of natural gas means that it is well placed to grow, with LNG underpinning the shift to a more competitive, global gas market n Gas demand continue to rise in all IEA scenarios to 2040 n For the future of gas to remain bright, prices need to stay competitive in emerging markets & industry needs to continue to improve its environmental performance n Gas can play a role in overcoming the challenges of local air pollution, climate change & energy access n The IEA will continue to help governments & industry with timely data, rigorous analysis, an all-of-technology approach and real-world solutions
