In both the 2017 and 2018 British Petroleum (BP) Energy Outlook’s the reports suggested that the global LNG trade through maritime routes would grow rapidly, eventually composing half of all trade over the next 20 years. The BP reports and many others show just how strong and dynamic the new natural gas and LNG market is. Trade of LNG grows seven times faster than pipeline trade, and from 2018 all global consumptions could be up to 40%.

The dramatic increase of natural gas imports into China in 2017 is yet another sign of China’s determination to restructure its energy infrastructure to address its long-term climate change and ecological challenges. It also foreshadows the gradual balancing of worldwide natural gas supply and demand over the next dozen years or so. For the foreseeable future, as worldwide supply and demand of natural gas seesaws, price fluctuations will be a constant feature of this market.
