In recent years the floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) business has rapidly grown and is now at the forefront of offshore industry focus. For the first time, this major new report by energy analysts brings together in one document a clear review of the current and future prospects, technology concepts and markets forecasts for expenditure in the FLNG sector. The report addresses both the floating regasification and the floating liquefaction vessel markets and quantifies the size of the opportunity in volume and value. The business is poised for substantial growth, particularly within the liquefaction sector, and is forecast to be worth $8.5 billion by 2015.

The IEA forecasts annual growth in natural gas supply will average 2.7% from 2006 to 2030. By 2030, natural gas will account for 22.3% of total worldwide primary energy supply. The difficulties in progressing onshore LNG projects has driven the adoption of FLNG which now offers an increasingly important method of bringing gas from stranded reserves to the market.

The World FLNG Market Report 2009 2015 ( ) is unique in providing a complete overview of both floating liquefaction and regasification concepts.
