The LNG market has become more dynamic, with higher liquidity and tending towards commoditization. As in the previous year, the expectations of a surplus of gas supply in the world in 2017 did not materialize, being offset by the concomitant increase in China's LNG demand. The ability to adapt to adverse market conditions has shown an increasing maturity of the LNG industry. Thus, this report aims at analyzing the LNG market and its future prospects, mainly in terms of prices and future investments required to balance the supply and demand scenario in the medium and long terms. This report also evaluates the possible impacts of the international market and increase in the number of projects of LNG regasification terminals linked to thermoelectric plants over the Brazilian natural gas market dynamics.
This report is supplemented by information on the international natural gas market within the context of the 2018-2027 energy planning studies.
