Access distinctive insights on the global gas & liquefied natural gas (LNG) market

Our outlook on the future of the global gas market is informed by detailed market research and continuous tracking of market developments as well as deep on-the-ground expertise across the globe. We forecast gas demand at a regional level and then use our infrastructure and contract outlooks to forecast supply-and-demand balances, corresponding gas flows, and pricing implications to 2030.

Our Tools

Global Gas Model

Forecasting capability of supply, demand, infrastructure, and resulting global gas flows with flexible scenarios to allow “what-if” analyses.

LNG Flow

Tracks the global LNG fleet on a daily basis, analyzing supply and demand balances and assessing activity and performance of LNG plants and terminals.

EU Pipe Flow

Tracks daily natural gas flows in the European Union (EU) pipeline system to deliver real-time analysis of supply, demand, and storage levels, as well as infrastructure utilization.

LNG Cost Curve

Bottom-up perspective on LNG liquefaction costs, project feasibility, price structure, and export capacity. The cost curve covers more than 1,100 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of currently known LNG projects.
