LNG: 2014 in Review

LNG: 2014 in Review

Report summary

The LNG industry celebrated its 50th birthday in 2014, but while the industry might have matured, it is still not short of surprises. Asian LNG demand was much lower than expected and LNG prices crashed. The big Final Investment Decision (FID) announcements all came in the second half of the year and were US focussed, with Cameron, Freeport (Trains 1 & 2) and Cove point all sanctioned.
