European LNG imports by supplying country 2018-2019

With most European countries pledging to reduce their carbon footprint in the coming decades, the use of less carbon dioxide-intensive fuels has grown in importance. This is reflected in the impressive growth in European imports of liquefied natural gas, a fossil fuel with comparatively low carbon dioxide emissions. Supplies from the United States grew by 395.9 percent between 2018 and 2019, amounting to European imports of 18.3 billion cubic meters in the latter year. By comparison, Qatar is the leading exporter of LNG to Europe.

Leading supplying countries of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Europe in 2018 and 2019 (in billion cubic meters)*
