The growth rate of India’s LNG imports is so high that the country might actually come close to the leader China in the near future, especially given that New Delhi briefly exceeded Beijing’s LNG imports in December 2017 (2.4 million tonnes versus 2.3 million tonnes). Given the aggressive protectionist policies of the current U.S. administration, it is entirely ...

... counterpart for up to 68 bcm of gas (See: Bloomberg). This was a sizeable figure for China, as it is an emerging player in regards to this fuel type; although it currently adds up to a small portion of its overall energy mix, its growth has been very rapid. China has single-handedly fuelled more demand for LNG and expanded not only in its domestic, but also in international markets, like Africa (See: NYT).
