LNG producers on a roll as market defies doomsayers

A robust 11.6 per cent expansion in LNG consumption in 2017, spurred by soaring Chinese imports, meant that the increase in supply capacity as new projects started up in Australia and the US was absorbed, according to Singapore-based DataFusion Associates.

Bernstein Research put the LNG demand growth at 11 per cent, the strongest since 2011, and is forecasting consumption will almost double by 2030. It labelled the view that markets are oversupplied and that a surplus may last for several years as "misconceptions".
