Asian countries are expected to drive most of the demand for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) by 2040 according to Shell’s LNG Outlook 2021.
“Overall, global LNG demand is estimated to hit 700 million tonnes by 2040. Asia is expected to drive nearly 75 per cent of this growth as domestic gas production declines and LNG substitutes higher emission energy sources, tackling air quality concerns and meeting emissions targets,” the outlook said.
