The UK’s import of LNG is accelerating faster than anticipated . . .

According to a report covered by Rigzone, the UK has just set a new monthly record for the import of LNG of 73 Bcf for November 2010. Can’t wait to see December which I suspect will be a new record again. It was 378 Bcf for the whole of 2009 and is expected to be close to 700 Bcf for 2010, so roughly double.

What”s interesting as well is the source of the LNG – predominantly Quatar, followed by Algeria and Nigeria.

I can’t see these trends not driving EU governments to push harder on shale gas exploration in the years to come.
