Global gas markets long-term supply outlook - North America LNG - H1 2016
US LNG capacity is scheduled to ramp up from 14 liquefaction trains, each around 4.5 – 5.0 mmtpa capacity, over the next four years. This rapid capacity build in combination with additional Australian supply and a weaker demand outlook could result in US LNG being underutilised during the early years of production. The global oversupply is also expected to delay the start of a second wave of US LNG to 2025, compared to 2022 in our H1 2015 forecast. Longer-term, the outlook for North America LNG (including Canada and Alaska) remains one of strong growth, with capacity more than doubling between 2020 and 2035.
