The United States is already the largest gas producer in the world, and will increase production more than any other country over the next 5 years. US gas production will grow by nearly 3% per year adding around 140 bcm by 2022, accounting for almost 40% of global output growth. More than half of this increase (80 bcm) will be turned to LNG for exports. Another 40 bcm is to meet demand growth, and the remainder as pipeline exports or substitutes for Canadian imports.
