Kuwait LNG long-term outlook 2017

Report summary

In 2009, the country turned to LNG imports via a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) to meet further requirements in power. Peak power demand during the hot summer months (April to October) is driven by air conditioning loads, making the country's gas demand very seasonal. In 2016, Kuwait sanctioned an onshore LNG import terminal. It will be the first large-scale onshore facility in the region, which currently relies exclusively on FSRUs. It is expected to start operations early next decade. The facility will likely change the country's import patterns, giving it more flexibility to optimise deliveries and manage seasonal gas demand fluctuations.
