LNG demand growth

Increased gas demand and improved liquefaction technology has prompted growth in the gas market and the entry of new players. Traditionally, LNG prices were strongly influenced by crude oil, however, as the market grows, the LNG market has begun to develop independent benchmarks. Japan, China, and South Korea are currently leading in LNG imports, with almost half of the growth from China alone. However, this growth is expected to soften as pipelines from Russia begin to supply China with LNG in the coming years.
