Global energy demand grew by 2.3% in 2018, the fastest pace this decade, driven by a robust global
economy, unseasonal weather, and moderate energy prices
2018 – a remarkable year in energy

The European Union needs to find imports to cover one-third of its demand by 2025, due to sharp
declines in the EU’s own production & the expiry of nearly 100 bcm of long-term gas import contracts

The IEA’s view that natural gas might be poised to enter a ‘Golden Age’ was met with scepticism in
some places, but many of the trends identified in 2011 have come to fruition

Conclusions
• Global gas consumption is rising rapidly, led by Asia where moderate prices,
economic expansion and air quality concerns are key drivers of growth
• Europe will need to seek imports to cover one-third of its demand by 2025,
because of declining domestic production & the expiry of long-term contracts
• The growth of destination-flexible, hub-priced LNG exports from the United States
is providing a catalyst for a new, more liquid global gas market
• Minimising methane emissions & investing in hydrogen, biomethane & CCUS will
enhance the long-term sustainability of gas infrastructure
• For Europe, LNG is a viable way to increase competition, improve diversity &
reduce costs, while reinforcing flexibility & security of supply
