Abstract: The delivery of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from various suppliers by sea, as an alternative to pipeline shipments and supplies, is seen as a way to secure and diversify natural gas imports in the EU. The purpose of this study is to investigate four main issues that may have a significant impact on future patterns of LNG supply and demand in the EU by 2020-2030. These four issues are: 1) Security, diversity and affordability of natural gas supply; 2) Energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions; 3) LNG quality and 4) Shipping of LNG.
