Investment in Liquefied Natural Gas Infrastructure to Reach $35.8 Billion in 2012

July 12th, 2012

New research identifies LNG as the fastest-growing fossil fuel, and conferences in critical markets give present opportunities to learn and network at the heart of this rapidly shifting market.

As global energy demand rises, natural gas has become the worlds fastest growing fossil fuel. The world has vast quantities of natural gas reserves, but most of them are located far from where the gas is most needed. The recovery, production, liquefaction, transport, regasification, and delivery of natural gas has created a massive chain of operations that allows international trade of this increasingly valuable natural resource.

As trade increases, so have opportunities, and companies looking to take advantage of this accelerating market need the best information, the right intelligence, and the most well-connected people to stay ahead of the competition. With access to industry-leading reports and expert trade conferences, Global Information Inc puts all the resources you need at your fingertips.

The Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Market 2012-2022

New research puts the value of global investment in infrastructure for LNG on track to reach $35.8 billion in 2012, including all capital investment in the infrastructure required for the production, transportation and regasification of LNG.

By the early 1960s the world had not yet seen any significant commercial trade in liquefied natural gas, but by the end of that decade commercial trade in LNG began to enable Japan to import gas through LNG. The world currently has substantial capacity to export LNG. The construction projects and plans for further capacity increase for LNG terminals across the globe imply that worldwide capacity for LNG production and trade will be increasing throughout the forecast period.

Capacity additions to all major national LNG import and export markets will drive growth in the LNG market. Over the forecast period of this report, many countries will see numerous new LNG production plants come on-stream, allowing those countries to exploit their natural gas reservoirs for export earnings. On the other hand, LNG regasification and storage terminals will enable countries or regions with limited access to natural gas resources to supplement their gas supplies as gas is currently the most efficient and effective form of electric power production and it is widely used for heating. Naturally, an increasing number of LNG carriers will be required in order to allow LNG trade to grow.

LNG Terminals & Pipelines Asia 2012

September 5-6, 2012, Rendezvous Grand Hotel Singapore, Singapore

Driven by rising oil prices, Asias major economies are actively building or are planning to build more liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals to diversify their energy supply and increase their energy security. With Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and other major governments investing billions into LNG terminal and pipeline projects, massive opportunities are set to boost various areas of engineering, construction and system technologies.

Meanwhile, professionals who are involved in these projects are constantly challenged to excel; they are looking for the best engineering techniques throughout the planning, construction and operations of LNG terminals and pipelines to ensure safety and quality delivery of the project on time and on budget.

LNG Terminals & Pipelines Asia 2012 will bring together regulatory bodies, LNG terminal & pipeline operators, EPC contractors and the top notch engineers in design, engineering and system control to share their views on the challenges throughout the project management. Timely case studies from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Korea, China and more, will be featured at the conference as well to be benchmarked against and for best practice advice to be shared.
