Key Market – Recommendation 6

Better understanding of the costs of local LPG infrastructure development

In this report, we have identified and characterised some of the most likely attractive markets for LPG in the short / medium terms.  In these and other markets, the establishment of local LPG network infrastructure, based perhaps on one or more major ‘anchor loads’, could well be a catalyst for future demand growth beyond what could normally be achieved. 

We believe this opportunity should be studied and assessed more deeply and therefore recommend that an analysis be done to explore the relative costs / benefits of developing LPG infrastructure as against LNG infrastructure in the priority markets we have identified – which may be less suitable for LNG because of natural limits on demand growth in future years.
