Meeting Asian LNG Demand
Demand for LNG has increased in recent years, as it has become increasingly available, affordable, and more environmentally sustainable than coal and crude oil. While Asian markets have become key importers of LNG, piping LNG to many countries in East Asia has presented great difficulties that have required, instead, transport by sea.
“Meeting Asian LNG Demand” explores the many ways in which demand for LNG has had an impact on shipping routes as well as trade issues between the suppliers and importers of natural gas. The story of LNG transport is explained against the backdrop of geopolitical tensions and diplomatic relations. Finally, the paper evaluates countries that may soon come online as global suppliers of LNG, and assesses the political implications of countries in Africa, as well as Canada and Israel, joining the ranks of exporters of natural gas.
