Global LNG supply is expected to grow at an unprecedented rate from 340 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) in 2016 to 486 mtpa in 2021, up 43%. While China has absorbed much of that recent growth, it is unlikely the Chinese demand will be the sole outlet for this further growth. Increase in demand in the other mature LNG markets of Asia and Europe is expected to be modest or flat. In this environment we can probably conclude the following:

Setting a model for small-scale importing markets, the Jamaican government and its electric utility monopoly Jamaica Public Services (JPS) have worked closely and effectively with a single private partner, U.S.-based New Fortress Energy (NFE), to rapidly introduce LNG within 1 year of the August 2015 gas-supply agreement. The island offers a case study with several specific lessons for both private developers and governments to succeed with minimal delays in implementing midstream and downstream gas projects.
