United States LNG demand long-term outlook 2015

Report summary

With the largest natural gas market in the world, the US may have once looked like an attractive end destination for LNG cargos. Since the shale revolution, it has largely become self-sufficient, and LNG demand has been rendered moot, for the most part. We expect this trend to continue in the near future, and cargos will be diverted to markets that provide higher returns, except in the US Northeast, where pipeline constraints make use of the Everett terminal during high-demand seasons. For the most part, however, the US import market will remain quiet, and we expect the country to become a net LNG exporter next year.
