The International Energy Agency’s latest gas market report notes that global demand for natural gas increased by three per cent in 2017. This was primarily due to rising gas consumption in China as part of the nation’s strategy to improve air quality. Meanwhile, the IEA forecasts that the global LNG market will grow by nearly 30 per cent over the next five years. Much of this growth will be due to higher production by the US, which is forecast to supplant Australia as the second-largest LNG exporter by 2023.
