Global gas markets long-term supply outlook - Central Asia - H1 2016

Report summary

We forecast that export volumes from Central Asia will grow from 57 bcm in 2015 to over 90 bcm post-2025. Exports to China from Turkmenistan's South Iolotan field, through an expanded Trans-Asia pipeline will underpin export growth.
