World’s largest gas producers, 2017

The U.S. shale revolution continues to alter gas markets

  • The shale revolution has turned the United States into the world’s leading gas producer
  • The U.S. domestic gas market has been transformed, while the country is exporting more than ever
  • Europe is increasingly reliant on gas imports, while simultaneously trying to diversify from Russian gas
  • In Asia, China will be the growth center for natural gas in the coming years, with massive potential

Primarily an American story, the “shale revolution” ended up having a transformational impact on both the United States and global gas markets, especially in Europe and Asia. The most notable effects have been on the trade of liquefied natural gas (LNG), with spillovers into pipeline gas markets.

Today, LNG markets are undergoing a structural change. Supply has been growing rapidly and the industry is shifting from a traditional point-to-point delivery business model (e.g., from Australia to Japan) toward a flexible, integrated global market. U.S. LNG, which is sold under flexible terms (spot pricing and short-term contracts), has been fueled by a rapid buildup in shale gas production.
