Small Scale LNG Terminals Market Installed Capacity is anticipated to reach 102 MMTPA by 2022: Transparency Market Research

Albany, NY, June 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to this report, the global small scale LNG terminals market stood nearly at 42 MMTPA (Million Metric Tonne Per Annum) in 2013 and is expected to reach at 102 MMTPA by 2022 at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2014 to 2022.

LNG is gradually emerging as one of the most preferred fuels globally and is being used by numerous end-user industries. Although large scale LNG terminals have been preferably constructed across the world till date, the emergence of small demand centers for natural gas within small geographies is gradually shifting the focus towards miniaturizing LNG infrastructure. The two primary forms of LNG infrastructure are liquefaction terminals and regasification terminals. With technological advancements, divergence of such liquefaction and regasification terminals on the basis of type has also been observed. Both these terminals can currently be located in both onshore as well as offshore areas. For this report, only terminals with tank sizes lesser than 200,000 cubic meters and throughputs lower than 300,000 tons per annum have been considered.

The demand for small scale LNG terminals is to be expected globally within the forecast period have been taken as a function of a variety of factors such as natural gas consumption, natural gas production, presence of stranded gas assets, demand from the industrial and power generation sectors, and growth and emergence of small scale inland demand centers. According to our analysis, a strong growth is expected to be observed in the small scale LNG liquefaction terminals market over the forecast period. With the LNG bunkering and surface transportation industries driving capacity additions for small scale liquefaction terminals, year-on-year capacity additions are likely to increase steadily until 2022. In terms of type, onshore liquefaction and regasification terminals are likely to remain the most popular type of small scale LNG infrastructure throughout the forecast period. Offshore infrastructure such as FSRUs and FSLUs are also likely to gain popularity towards the middle of the forecast period.
