In the past several years, China’s LNG industry advanced at an unstoppable pace. The five-year average growth rate of the domestic LNG production capacity is 36% and that of the LNG import is 15%. The domestic production reached 10.1 million tons in 2017, up 28% from 2016, and that of import reached 38.3 million tons, up 43% from 2016. By those two simple numbers, China’s LNG industry again shocked the world with its “China Speed”.

Decades of dependence on coal has caused the northern region of China to be choked by heavy pollution without fail every year, directly impacting its citizen’s health and the overall image of the capital.  When President Xi Jinping came to power in 2013, he implemented steadfast measures ensuring his policies made a difference. One of the directives was the call for “War on pollution” which set forward the drive for a cleaner environment. In accordance, a series of initiatives has been set by the government to ensure national targets are met.

It has been reported by McKinsey Energy that out of the ~230mtpa of growth expected in global LNG between 2015-2030, as much as 60% could come from emerging markets. While the Philippines has faced challenges like many emerging economies when it comes to gas and LNG infrastructures, Canadain projects have faced similar altercations.

Asia-Pacific is a fast-evolving gas market characterized by destination restriction, orthodox policies and monopolistic domestic supply infrastructure. However, the scenario is set to change as major Asian countries are liberalizing the gas policies. The ending of long-term contracts has given way to more flexible spot market in Asia. Asian economies are to be benefitted from falling gas prices that provides an incentive for the government to develop gas infrastructure to support gas penetration in the domestic market.

Recent trends in world natural gas demand: The year 2017 still highlights the strong competition between natural gas, coal and renewable energies. While the global economic recovery has strengthened, it is estimated that growth in global gas consumption accelerated to 3% in the first three quarters of 2017, compared to the same period last year.

By 2030, McKinsey has estimated the share of natural gas in the global energy mix will grow from 22% in 2016 to 23%, driven mainly by the growth in China, India and South East Asia. With the West Coast of Canada being a prime location for LNG facilities due to its proximity to Asia, the region is to meet this growing demand.

Global gas demand is predicted to grow 1.6% each year for the next five years, as reported by the IEA. With gas consumption growing, Canada is working hard to amplify their gas market and provide that much-needed supply. Following on from their first shipment of LNG from Canada to China, FortisBC are now expanding their LNG storage facility to meet the projected long-term growth.

E&P has become a margin business, with relentless pressure on unit operating costs (UOC) and global competition for capital. Whilst the industry response to the downturn has been impressive, past initiatives, such as reductions in headcount and supplier rates, are unlikely to go far enough and risk being non-sustainable.
