KOREA HAS LONG BEEN THE WORLD’S #2 LNG IMPORTER. IT TOOK 33.5MN TONS IN 2016, SECOND ONLY TO JAPAN’S 83.3MN T. KOREA IMPORTS ARE UP 16% AT 30.2MN T FOR THE FIRST 10 MONTHS OF 2017… (MN T)

 

BUT THAT’S NOTHING COMPARED TO THE 48% LEAP IN CHINESE IMPORTS. THESE HAD NEVER TOPPED THOSE OF KOREA BEFORE 2016. THEY HAVE NOW DONE SO IN FIVE OF THE LAST SIX MONTHS… (MN T)

 

CHINA REMAINS JUST BEHIND KOREA FOR JAN-OCT17. BUT RECENT BUYING AND NORMAL...
