The global LNG industry: A changing landscape
The global LNG industry: A changing landscape

These are heady days for the global LNG industry.  Here in the U.S., the so-called “second wave” of LNG export projects is upon us. Elsewhere around the world, Qatar is proceeding with awarding contracts for different elements of its North Field Expansion Project, Anadarko and its partners took FID on the Mozambique Area 1 LNG Project (with other projects in Mozambique and elsewhere in East Africa in various continuing stages of development), and construction contracts are being signed for the Novatek-led Arctic LNG-2 project in Russia’s West Siberia.

Rethinking how we build the next generation of LNG projects in America
Rethinking how we build the next generation of LNG projects in America

Having spent more than 50 years in the engineering and construction industry, I’ve had my share of great projects and not-so-great projects. Most of us would agree that we learn more from bad experiences than from good ones. Over the past 15 years, LNG projects have experienced major cost and schedule challenges. In fact, 10 of the last 12 LNG projects have exceeded their planned budgets and schedules; some by as much as 50%.

NextDecade: Optimally positioned to deliver the largest export solution linking Permian Basin natural gas to the global LNG market

Cleaner-burning natural gas has an important role to play in helping reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. It’s also affordable for energy consumers and abundant. These three primary attributes are driving governmental policies favoring liquefied natural gas (LNG) and contributing to rising global LNG demand.

LNG: A key role in Europe’s future gas supply mix
LNG: A key role in Europe’s future gas supply mix

The current LNG glut has seen regasification rates rising to record highs this year as Europe plays a key role in balancing the global market. Europe is able to benefit from such oversupplied global market conditions due to a healthy level of available LNG import capacity, deep market liquidity and the significant price elasticity of demand; gas generation loads can be increased through coal-to-gas switching when gas prices drop lower.

The changing LNG business
The changing LNG business

The LNG business is in a period of fundamental change as it moves from its traditional rigid structure to become a fully traded commodity. This period of change is happening during a time of considerable volume growth in the industry with LNG supply doubling by 2020, from 2016 levels; with growth expected to continue until at least 2030.  This change is not without pain, like a child growing from the restrictions and rules set by its parents, but one thing is clear, the LNG business will grow in size and become commoditised - the question is by when?
