    Global LNG trade sets records; US Gulf Coast to lead future supply

 Global LNG trade occurred at record volumes for the fifth consecutive year, reaching 316.6 million tonnes, according to the International Gas Union's (IGU) 2019 World LNG Report. This marks an increase of 28.2 million tonnes (9.8%), from 2017, the third-largest annual increase ever behind only 2010 and 2017.

More than 99 million tonnes occurred as non-long-term trade, a 14.5 million-tonne increase from 2017 and 31% of total 2018 LNG trade. This is the second year in a row in which the non-long-term market substantially expanded due to growing LNG supply and demand elasticity. Increases in LNG supply came from higher production at new liquefaction plants.

The single greatest increase in LNG exports occurred in Australia (up 12.2 million tonnes), owing to new trains coming onstream and higher utilization at existing plants. Other significant contributors to LNG supply were the US and Russia, which added 8.2 million and 7.8 million tonnes respectively, across new and existing trains. The Asia-Pacific region continues to be the leading LNG-exporting region, supplying 38.4% of total exports (121.6 million tonnes), consistent with its share of global exports since 2016.

Increasing demand in 2018 also played a key role in growing global LNG trade. The additions of Bangladesh and Panama as the two newest importing markets in the last year brought the total number to 37. Asia remained the driver of international LNG demand growth. China and South Korea returned as the key sources of LNG import demand in 2018, with growth of 15.8 million and 6.4 million tonnes, respectively. Together, the two countries accounted for nearly 80% of net trade's increase.
