European Small-Scale LNG Markets Analysis Webinar


ICIS hosted a webinar on 22 July 2015, analysing the current situation and outlook for small-scale LNG in Europe, and its potential globally. Click here to download the presentation slides and recording available.

Small-scale LNG has a significant likelihood to create a new aggregated demand front; growth in these markets is being driven by factors such as environmental regulations, propelling the move towards LNG as a transportation fuel.

However, regulations and prices can be both an enabler and barrier to market growth, as demonstrated by the price sensitivity of supply/demand to falling crude. While small-scale LNG growth has potential, it is by no means inevitable due to the challenges that the sector faces.

 Exploring Small-Scale LNG in Europe and Beyond

At a time when the outlook of small-scale LNG is uncertain, this free resource is designed to provide a clear overview of this emerging market. Focusing on Europe, while putting the region in a global context, ICIS experts will analyse the current competitive landscape and the potential for small-scale LNG to become a new aggregated demand for sectors, like shipping.
