The oil price collapse and COVID-19 pandemic have thrown the energy industry into turmoil with the new market conditions leading companies to review the status of their global project portfolios. This fast-paced environment necessitates that decision-makers take a holistic approach to managing infrastructure in the midstream and downstream markets. As you look to the future, join the next Energy Web Atlas webcast to gain industry perspective that will allow your company to better navigate the months ahead.
The Energy Web Atlas took a closer look at the following. What projects have updated their status in:
Asia drives global LNG demand. Robust demand for cleaner-burning fuel in Asian countries amid rapid population growth, improvements to living standards, and general economic advancement provide a context for sustained LNG import capacity investment.
LNG exporters to Asia have a slew of challenges to contend with, however, including the prospects for project sanction delays and other demand-side factors impacted by global health scares, relative economic underperformance, and trade disputes and wars. The continued drop in global natural gas prices continues to constrain prospects.
Asian LNG prices reached extremely low levels in the 1Q of 2020 amid a glut of global natural gas production and the start of additional global export capacity. Less severe winters, increased demand-side efficiencies, and potential new LNG capacity could continue to depress price levels. The prospect of ever-increasing Asian LNG demand prompted massive capacity investment in both upstream developments and midstream infrastructure. The factors may come as a boon to demand centers, but operators with oil-linked contracts are at a disadvantage.
This webcast describes the key drivers, challenges, and impacts of Asian LNG capacity investment to 2025 and an examination of the implications for a variety of far-reaching factors. We look at the effects of potential oil-linked vs. hub-based pricing in the Asian project economics context, highlight critical factors supporting or inhibiting project progression, and provide a five-year outlook on anticipated capacity expansion for key Asian LNG import nations, including China, Japan, India, and South Korea.
Demand for Europe’s natural gas transmission infrastructure is increasingly in focus as the continent’s natural gas dependency continues to reach all-time highs. Amid steep year-over-year declines in natural gas production, the continent is increasingly reliant on LNG imports and international pipelines to supply key regions. But key restraints remain in areas where import capacity has insufficient access to growing demand centers. Additionally, emerging demand factors and remote upstream developments amid a push for lower carbon fuels provides a context for midstream infrastructure investment.
We examine the implications for managing the supply of natural gas through Europe to consumers. We examine capital investments, potential, and identify areas where a conflux of issues may lead to a gas transmission system shortfall. We examine regional natural gas transmission capacity and import facility capacities compared to the prospects of domestic supply and growing demand centers. Which areas require additional investment by midstream operators and what are the implications of this for the broader gas dynamics of Europe?
In this webcast, the data experts at Energy Web Atlas and editors of Pipeline & Gas Journal bring order to the construction chaos with a comprehensive update on key Permian-Gulf Coast pipeline projects and their overall impact on export capacity and production growth in this dynamic region
Over the past several years, the world has witnessed significant downstream capacity growth in all sectors of the downstream hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI). To satisfy increasing demand for refined fuels, petrochemicals and natural gas, every region is investing to increase downstream processing capacity. Although the Asia-Pacific, Middle East and US regions will be the leaders in capacity growth, other regions have announced capital-intensive projects to meet future demand. With more than $1.8 T in announced projects globally, it is imperative that HPI companies receive the most up-to-date and valid information on market trends, and the future development of the downstream processing industry.
During this live webcast, Lee Nichols and Thad Pittman will provide a mid-year update on capital projects around the world, as well as major economic, environmental and political market trends that are shaping and influencing the industry in the near-term.
A record year for LNG project sanctions in 2019? - LNG supply looks set to have a record year in 2019 on two fronts – production growth and the number of financial investment decisions (FIDs) expected to be taken.
Review our live webcast with Hydrocarbon Processing Editor & Associate Publisher Lee Nichols, Energy Web Atlas’ Peregrine Bush & Scott Allgood, as they use the Energy Web Atlas LNG dataset to examine the current status of the global LNG network, as well as determine the future outlook.
Review our live webcast on whether Asia will provide a market for significant US exports? - Hydrocarbon Processing Editor & Associate Publisher Lee Nichols, Energy Web Atlas’ Peregrine Bush explore why LNG exports are set to be dominated by the US, Australia and Qatar as it is expected that they will account for over half of global LNG exports by 2040. See how EWA demonstrates how the US currently has an export capacity of 25m t/y and is heading towards 100m t/y in the short term.
Review our live demo on “Construction Boxscore”, our downstream projects database that tracks global refining, petrochemical and gas processing projects, supported by a global research team. New projects are updated daily and changed data on current projects is updated constantly. Watch the demo as Bob Andrew, Senior Data Analyst & Research Coordinator with Energy Web Atlas, demonstrates Boxscore by focusing on the active Asian Pacific region.
