According to Lloyd’s Register Marine Global Trends 2030 Report
Lloyd’s Register, QinetiQ and University of Strathclyde have worked together to prepare Global Marine Trends 2030 report.
According to the report, LNG export will be dominated by Australia and Qatar in 2030. Qatar is the biggest LNG exporter today. But thanks to Australia’s several LNG export projects under development, Australia is tipped to surpass Qatar by 2020. The largest export increases will take place in Australia and Nigeria. East Africa, in particular Mozambique, could be a new hotspot in LNG exports due to its recent large offshore discoveries.
Regarding LNG import, report states that the largest increase will come from India and China between 2010 and 2030. The natural gas import will be dominated by Japan, Europe, India and China in 2030.
