DW: Global FLNG set for new wave of growth

October 1, 2015

Despite a current pause in commitments to new projects, the capital expenditure (capex) for FLNG vessels is expected to amount to US$35.5 billion over 2015-2021, says a new report by Douglas-Westwood (DW) entitled "World FLNG Market Forecast 2015-2021."

Spending on FSRUs will total $22.8 billion over the same period, taking the combined expenditure for the Floating LNG market to $58.3 billion.

There is a huge interest in the pioneering projects that will drive market spend over the coming years. Future commitments by operators to the FLNG market hinges on the success of these pioneering projects.

DW anticipates more floating regasification units are to be sanctioned, with Asia and Latin America being the dominant regions. Upcoming projects are visible in Indonesia, China, Pakistan, India, Vietnam, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, mostly led by National Oil Companies. Latin America will see deployments of floating regas units in Chile and Puerto Rico.
