Gas Processing & LNG is Produced by Gulf Publishing Holdings LLC



U.S. Industry Metrics

The U.S. has been a net exporter of gas for more than a year, with a sharp rise in exports in 2019 helped by an increase in LNG shipments from eight new trains at three projects: Cameron LNG, Freeport LNG and Elba Island LNG. Domestic natural gas production also reached new highs in 2019. Similar to 2018, last year showed record levels of natural gas production, driven by growth in the Permian, Appalachian, and Haynesville basins. New pipeline capacity supported the higher production, particularly in the Permian, where prices were very low due to insufficient pipeline infrastructure to move natural gas out of the region. GP

Australia and Middle Eastern countries, which have been net LNG exporters, are now foraying into LNG imports due to supply issues.
Industry Focus: Mixed performance for Africa’s gas markets in 2019 poses questions for next decade
-Shem Oirere
As 2020 begins, Africa’s gas market is left with a mixed bag of achievements that only partly confirms a prediction by the International Gas Union (IGU) in early 2019 that the continent’s natural gas segment is “facing a potential turning point.”
Regional Focus: North American NGL to boom alongside petrochemicals
-Eugene Khartukov
Strong natural gas production and rapidly rising demand from petrochemicals makers have resulted in record-high production of natural gas plant liquids in North America, particularly in the U.S. This growth has been led by ethane.
