China is expected to primarily drive the LNG regasification capacity additions globally by 2025, says an article published in Safety4Sea.
According to analytics company GlobalData, China is expected to primarily drive the LNG regasification capacity additions globally by 2025, with Europe and Middle East being the second and third highest contributors respectively.
Asia to dominate
Asia is expected to dominate the global new build and expansion regasification capacity additions, contributing about 74% of the total global capacity additions by 2025, says the company’s new report examining global capacity and CAPEX outlook for LNG regasification terminals through 2025.
More specifically, Asia is expected to witness the highest capacity additions globally from new build and expansion projects during the outlook period 2021 to 2025 with 15.2 trillion cubic feet (tcf).
China LNG regasification expansion projects
China primarily drives the LNG regasification capacity additions in Asia by 2025. Among new build and expansion projects expected to start operations during 2021 to 2025 in China, the Tangshan II terminal is expected to witness the highest capacity additions in the country with 584.4 billion cubic feet (bcf) by 2025,

Europe second highest contributor
Europe is expected as the second highest contributor to the global LNG regasification capacity additions accounting for about 9% of the total additions by 2025, said Mr. Gandham, adding that Brunsbuttel in Germany drives the new build LNG regasification capacity in the region with 282.4 bcf by 2025.
Middle East contributes about 7%
The Middle East ranks third globally contributing about 7% of the world’s LNG regasification capacity additions during the outlook period 2021–2025. Al-Zour in Kuwait drives the new build regasification capacity additions in the region with 1,155 bcf by 2025.
