Background

Over the past 20 years, global natural gas production and consumption have become a cleaner and more efficient alternative to diesel and coal. The U.S. is expected to become the world’s top gas exporter by 2020, and Asian nations represent a target market, as they are increasingly importing LNG.

Vietnam is looking to develop LNG import terminals and storage facilities to supply gas-fired power plants with sufficient feedstock. Indonesia plans to modernize and refurbish its existing gas infrastructure, including converting liquefaction terminals to regasification terminals, to accommodate gas imports. Indonesia also plans to build small- to medium-sized gas-fired power plants (10-20 megawatts) to electrify remote islands, especially in more isolated parts of eastern Indonesia utilizing a system of mini-LNG tankers to supply the islands from larger LNG terminal hubs. In the Philippines, the development of a $2 billion LNG import terminal in Batangas (south of Manila) is under consideration in response to depleting resources at the Malampaya Gas Field, which, if approved, would be the country’s first LNG facility.
