Whether you're looking to invest, already have a project in the planning stages, or you have or are aiming for a career in LNG, this course will give you the knowledge you need on LNG trends, markets, technologies, and commercial prospects.

Global demand for LNG continued to rise throughout 2017, with the top three importers - Japan, China, and South Korea - taking nearly 160 million tons by year end, pushing Asian spot prices to $11.2 mmBtu. This momentum is expected to be sustained for at least several years due to a number of structural factors, including a strong push for coal-to-gas transition in China and planned denuclearization in South Korea. The International Energy Agency in its forecast saw global LNG trade rise to around 560 bcm by 2030 and over 700 bcm by 2040. The market becomes increasingly tight thanks to a supporting regulatory and economic environment, which is responsible for rising LNG and gas demand from the industrial, power, and road and marine transport sectors in all major economic regions.

On the supply side, the United States is widely expected to become the largest LNG exporter by 2025 with a total volume of 115 bcm, surpassing Qatar and Australia who are respectively no.1 and no.2 exporters at present. There are currently two U.S. LNG export projects in operation while 15 more are either being planned or built, bringing total capacity to over 260 bcm by 2025. This means commitments are being made to invest into gasification and export facilities, LNG tankers, as well as human capital.
