Preparing for the CWC 9th World LNG & Gas Series: Asia Pacific Summit

LNG demand in Asia is growing steadily and Singapore is becoming recognised as its hub

Ahead of the CWC 9th World LNG & Gas Series: Asia Pacific Summit in Singapore, CWC checked the pulse of the LNG industry with two key players, Diamond Gas International and Wood Mackenzie.

According to Wood Mackenzie, LNG demand in Asia is growing strongly especially as more countries expand their regasification terminals. In particular, the use of FSRUs has allowed countries to quickly join the buyers’ club. In a recent interview, available on the Asia Pacific Summit website, Wood Mackenzie stated that they are increasingly optimistic about growing LNG imports in Asia.

Diamond Gas International stated that they recognise Singapore’s huge potential of becoming Asia’s hub for the LNG industry considering the advanced social and business infrastructure, and convenient access to traditional demand centers in North East Asia and developing demand centers across Southeast/South Asia.

Both the Wood Mackenzie and Diamond Gas International interviews are available in full at the Asia Pacific Summit website and they are also participating as speakers at the event which is set to bring together the key LNG buyers and sellers from across the globe this September.

The Summit provides the perfect platform to network, meet contacts, nurture partnerships and do deals with leading decision makers and will cover topics such as:
