08 December 2016

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has selected ICIS LNG EDGE analytics platform as a primary data provider for launching its recent IEA Global Gas Security Review reportHow flexible are LNG markets in practice?

The paper makes use of an extensive LNG EDGE database of global production outages categorised according to their various causes.

Global production growth has been impacted not only by delayed start-ups but by a variety of outages at existing liquefaction plants, many of which have been in service for decades. The Global Gas Security Review 2016, the first edition of a new annual series, examines the evolving global gas market structures and looks at the market’s ability to respond to potential shocks.

Continual monitoring by dedicated teams of analysts and journalists at ICIS ensures LNG EDGE users can go beyond news headlines to uncover global and train-specific views on LNG production.

LNG EDGE provides an integrated analytics platform that fuses real-time vessel-tracking and editorial coverage with a proprietary database of infrastructure, LNG supply contracts, tenders, and plant outages, all with unprecedented levels of granularity.
