Map of LNG movements in the OECD

Within the OECD, LNG imports remained fairly constant in 2016. There were small decreases in OECD Americas and OECD Europe and an increase in OECD Asia Oceania after the substantial fall in 2015. Mexico and the UK, which saw big increases in pipeline imports, drove the decline of LNG imports in the OECD Americas and OECD Europe respectively. On the other hand, both Japan and Korea increased their imports by almost 2% receiving from Australia 10.2 bam more than in 2015.

Despite the decrease in imports from Qatar (-7.1 bam), it is still the main supplier of LNG for the OECD with 24.1% of the total share. However, Qatar is no longer the main supplier of OECD Asia Oceania after being surpassed by Australia.
