Pacific basin countries will be the main contributor to the forecasted boom, the report says.

China, in particular, has seen its LNG demand grow from 1 billion cubic meters in 2006 to around 13 billion cubic meters today, the report says. On the supply side, despite the global economic recession, 2010 saw the start of major construction work on new LNG facilities in Australia and Papua New Guinea.
