WORLD LNG TRADE: PRESENT STATUS AND LONG TERM PROSPECTS

This paper reviews the present status and long term prospects for the international sea-borne LNG trade. It concentrates on the United States, Western Europe and Japan, and discusses possible supply sources to meet the prospective demand in these markets. Apart from supply and demand, two other subjects were selected for discussion. The first is prices and related pricing considerations, and the second, the availability of and requirement for LNG ships in the period up to 1990. World gas reserves and consumption are also covered, and estimated figures for 1976 are cited.
