The Gas Databooks provides a deep dive into the Asia Pacific gas/LNG markets on a country/region level and incorporates FGE’s gas/LNG balance forecasts out to 2050 under various scenarios (base/low/high).

It analyzes individual markets and the gas and LNG demand outlook relative to the Base Case in both ‘high’ and ‘low’ oil and LNG price environments for select price sensitive markets. The Databook also summarizes the global LNG supply/demand outlook as well as regional LNG demand coverage for the Middle East and North Africa, Europe, and LatAm.
