Economic impact of LNG exports from the United States
Deloitte Center for Energy Solutions & Deloitte MarketPoint LLC Report
This US focussed report has many parallels for the Australian context, especially the eastern seaboard. With more recent discoveries of shale gas supplies the United States is contemplating a more complex energy future. There is much upside but nonetheless economy-wide considerations to be factored into policy and development pathways.
US LNG exporters will undoubtedly benefit from selling to buyers overseas, but how will such exports impact domestic consumers – and prices – of natural gas? Increased competition for supplies and potentially accelerated resource depletion will raise domestic prices, but by how much?
Deloitte Center for Energy Solutions & Deloitte MarketPoint LLC have developed an assessment of the potential economic impact of LNG exports from the United States based upon various assumptions. This report summarises the findings of alternative scenarios regarding US LNG exports and offers related strategic insights.
