In this issue:

Qatar bounces back
Qatar plans to boost LNG output, while existing buyers are examining their contracts. Other companies and governments will have to hedge their bets.

Japan ruling loosens LNG trades
The Japanese anti-monopoly agency rulings will free LNG markets, allowing sellers less freedom to set the direction of travel.

IEA: Chinese power helps gas growth
Industry in China, India and the US is going to use more gas, while the power sector will grow more slowly - with the exception of China, says the IEA.

The rise of Floating lng
FLNG scored some notable successes this year and gas and LNG are gaining traction as the world gradually but firmly moves towards clean energy.

Bangladesh readies for LNG boom
Bangladesh is lining up LNG contracts, terminals and its tax regime to allow the smooth entry of the fuel from early 2018, to meet demand from energy-intensive industry.

Gazprom downscales Turkish presence
As the 31.5bn m³/yr TurkStream pipeline begins to take physical shape, Gazprom is changing its strategy in Turkey, exiting the marketing sector.

Global impact of US LNG
US LNG is already changing the global trading landscape and substantially more is to come, causing as far-reaching change as shale oil did in the oil market.

LNG comes of age: interview
LNG is becoming a fuel in its own right, rather than a long-distance method of transportation. Better technology will quicken this process, argues Andrei Belyi.

Total pioneers ISO tank deal
French energy company Total will supply LNG to the Brittany Ferries-operated Honfleur in the port of Ouistreham, northern France on a long term contract, it said July 10.

Argentina secures credit for pipeline
Argentina secured funding from development bank CAF to expand its transport network, to deal with rising supply from shale plays like Vaca Muerta.

Vietnam ups ante in South China Sea
China’s landgrab in distant waters has angered Vietnam, which is continuing to assert its rights with drilling for oil and gas in coastal waters.

Global gas flaring rises in 2016
Another year, another rise in gas flaring. Associated gas, far from a pipeline to take it to market, is one problem; war and political insouciance are others.
