Report summary

An LNG import terminal utilising a leased FSRU has been proposed for south eastern Australia. Reactions to the plan have been mixed due to the three CSG LNG projects in Queensland. But declining production from existing supply areas and increasing demand are expected to result in a large demand/supply gap through most of the 2020s. An LNG import terminal may therefore make economic and strategic sense for gas buyers eager to reduce their gas costs and increase their flexibility and bargaining position.
