Session 4: Regional LNG – Key Markets Driving Asia Pacific’s LNG Demand Growth

Pricing levels play a crucial role in stimulating long-term demand in Asia. In North Asian markets, balancing LNG with decarbonisation objectives is challenging, and managing expiring contracts amid uncertain demand is crucial, leading to some discussion on long-term contracts. In South & Southeast Asian markets, high LNG prices impact new entrants and existing projects, encouraging the optimisation of infrastructure, and bolstering firm LNG supply. For the Indian Sub-Continent markets, price sensitivity is a challenge, and appetite for investing in US projects or committing to HH-indexed LNG is being assessed. The question remains whether high prices defer or destroy LNG demand. How much appetite is there for new long-term contracts in key Asia markets? What impact has high prices had on new entrants and their existing projects and their planned gas to power projects? What is the appetite to invest in US projects or commit to long term HH indexed LNG?

Attendee Insights:
Assessing the current and future appetite for LNG in key Asian markets as they balance economic viability, environmental concerns, and energy independence.

Session 8: Transition – The Role of LNG in Asia-Pacific’s Energy Transition

Buyers in Asia are increasingly interested in LNG with low greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Delivering GHG-neutral LNG, as demonstrated by Shell’s recent delivery to Taiwan, is a step toward addressing emissions concerns. While companies focus on Scope 1 and 2 emissions (from operations and bought fuel), they also grapple with pressure to address Scope 3 emissions (from products). Changing regulations and evolving clean energy expectations add complexity to adopting new decarbonisation technologies. However, innovative technologies and strategic planning will drive its evolution, with LNG’s resilience and adaptability contributing significantly to Asia-Pacific’s sustainable energy future. What policy changes are needed to encourage the sustainable use of LNG? Hoe effectively are organisations in Japan and the wider region reducing their Scope 1 and 2 emissions. What emerging technologies will have the greatest impact on achieving net-zero goals?

Attendee Insights:
