Report Sample Abstract:

Africa LNG Exports to triple in the next decade

Africa is expected to witness strong rise in its LNG export trade quantities over the next decade. This is largely due to its increasing liquefaction capacity. All the existing LNG exporting countries in Africa have planned for capacity increase between 2010 and 2020. Accordingly, the LNG exports are also expected to increase.

We expect the African LNG export volume to increase from XX mtpa in 2010 to XXX mtpa in 2020. Most of the increase will be from Nigeria and Algeria.

Algeria LNG Export Capacity forecast, 2000-2020

Algeria pioneered the global liquefaction industry in 1964, when its first LNG export terminal started operations. Through its Arzew GL4 LNG (Camel) terminal in Arzew area, the country exported its first commercial LNG cargo to Canvey Isle LNG terminal in the UK.

Algeria has four LNG export plants with a total liquefaction capacity of XX mtpa as of 2010. The country accounts for around one-third of Africa’s total liquefaction capacity. Currently Algeria is the fifth largest LNG exporter in the world after Qatar, Indonesia, Malaysia and Australia. The country exported XX million tons of LNG in 2010 to both Atlantic and pacific basin import markets.

Algeria currently has four operating liquefaction terminals, three of which are located in Arzew area and the fourth in Skikda area. In addition to these four terminals, another liquefaction terminal is scheduled for operations in Arzew area.

The Skikda GL1K terminal in Skikda area experienced a major accident in 2004 that left three of its trains completely destroyed. Accordingly, the LNG export capacity of the terminal reduced from XX to XX mtpa in 2004 and Algerian export capacity reduced from XX to XX mtpa. Sonatrach is currently planning to construct a new train with XX mtpa to replace its destroyed trains. Accordingly, when the new train commences operations in 2013, Skikda LNG terminal will have a liquefaction capacity of XX mtpa.

In addition to its existing terminals, Sonatrach is also planning Gassi Touil LNG terminal at a cost of $XX billion. The terminal will be capable of producing XX mtpa LNG in one train and is expected to commence operations in 2012. With the commencement of these two trains, Algerian LNG export capacity will increase to XX mtpa in 2013 and will remain the same till 2020.

Africa LNG production is expected to stand at 130.57 mtpa in 2020, largely driven by increase in liquefaction capacity. As the global LNG supply-demand balance is expected to tighten in the second half of the next decade, the average LNG terminal utilization rate will continue to increase.

Egypt’s total LNG exports stood at XX mtpa in 2010. Of this, maximum volume of XX mtpa was sold in January. On the import side, Spain and the US imported largest volumes of XX mtpa and XX mtpa respectively.

Nigeria average LNG export price stood at $XX/MMBtu in 2010. December witnessed the maximum average export price of $XX/MMBtu. China and South Korea paid the highest average prices of $XX and $XX per MMBtu respectively.

Country wise Contracted and Non- Contracted LNG Capacity, 2000-2020

Nigeria will have the largest volume of spare capacity in the region 2020. Algeria will have the second highest volume of spare capacity in the region. Of a total spare capacity of 57.6 mtpa, Algeria will have a spare capacity of 27.1 mtpa, Nigeria’s spare capacity will stand at 16.9 mtpa, followed by Egypt with 5.7 mtpa, Equatorial Guinea with 4.7 mtpa and Libya with 3.2 mtpa.
