Charting the Future of LNG: Navigating Shifts and Seizing Opportunities

Supporting Partners

Market Overview

The global LNG market presents positive prospects amidst evolving dynamics. Europe’s increased LNG imports to compensate for reduced pipeline gas shipments from Russia indicate a strong demand trend, creating an opportunities for the LNG market. The global LNG industry continues to witness growth in production, trade volume, and infrastructure capacity. These positive indicators contribute to a promising outlook for the global LNG market, positioning it as a vital component of the evolving energy landscape.

Qatar, a leading global gas supplier, strategically expands LNG production to meet growing demand for cleaner energy. The ambitious $10 billion North Field Expansion Project aims to boost capacity by 60%, adding two mega LNG trains with a combined capacity of 16 million tonnes per annum (mtpa). Qatar, further secured its second major gas supply deal with China, signing a 27-year agreement for the purchase of 4 million metric tons of LNG annually. Other regional players, including Oman and ADNOC in the UAE, are also expanding LNG production capabilities. Bahrain discovered natural gas reservoirs, contributing to domestic energy resources, while Egypt saw a 171% surge in natural gas export revenue, highlighting its growing role in the global market. These efforts demonstrate the region’s commitment to meeting global demand and transitioning to low-carbon energy systems. Globally, the LNG market is estimated to be valued at around USD 74.6 billion by the end of this year. Looking ahead, it is projected to experience significant growth, with an anticipated value of USD 103.4 billion within the next five years.

EVENT OVERVIEW

The INTERNATIONAL LNG FORUM, hosted in Doha, Qatar from 5-6 March 2024, holds great significance as the global gas market undergoes radical shifts due to the ongoing Ukraine-Russia war and the resulting sanctions on Russian gas exports. These developments have created challenges and opportunities, particularly for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, which aim to diversify their oil and gas markets and revenue streams. The INTERNATIONAL LNG FORUM will address several key topics to drive discussions and provide insights into the LNG industry. These include the increased global demand for LNG, competition between LNG and clean energy in the future, optimizing extraction techniques, expanding LNG transportation and shipping vessel capacity, building sustainable supply chains, enhancing asset effectiveness and equipment modification, embracing digital transformation, and addressing decarbonization and low-carbon LNG production. The event will also cover important themes related to HSE, LNG storage, cost efficiency, and effectiveness. Over the course of the two event days, delegates will have extensive opportunities to network, discuss the future of the industry, and forge partnerships to advance the LNG industry toward a sustainable and prosperous future.

MARKET DRIVERS

Qatar is the world's largest exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG), with pivotal role in meeting the increasing global demand for LNG

Qatar's ambition to become the world's top LNG trader, supported by its massive LNG expansion plans, adds to the rationale for hosting the forum in the country. With its extensive LNG infrastructure, expertise, and low lifting costs, Qatar is well-positioned to play a leading role in global LNG trading

The World LNG Report 2022, published by the International Gas Union (IGU), indicates that LNG has established connections between 40 importing countries and 19 exporting countries, fostering global connectivity in the LNG market

Bahrain, recently discovered two natural gas reservoirs, Al-Jawf and Al-Joubah, onshore, which can contribute to their domestic energy resources

Qatar Energy announced this year the awarding of the North Field Expansion Project contract worth $10 billion. “The award includes two LNG ‘mega’ trains with a combined capacity of 16 mtpa”. This expansion will increase the country’s production by almost 60%

Oman plays a major role as one of the top LNG exporters globally

Egypt experienced a substantial increase in natural gas export revenue, with a surge of 171% in 2022, highlighting the country's growing role in the global natural gas market

The report highlights that the global liquefaction capacity reached 459.9 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) in 2021, following an increase of 6.9 MTPA compared to the previous year's capacity of 20 MTPA - this growth signifies the expanding potential of LNG worldwide
