LNG Markets Conducive to “Gas to Power” in Africa

September 2016
Mayer Brown Article
Fundamental changes in the international market for liquefied natural gas (LNG) over the past few years have for the first time made gas to power projects practical in those parts of Africa that do not have a domestic supply of natural gas or access to a natural gas pipeline grid to import natural gas from countries that do. These changes to the LNG market, when coupled with the development of floating LNG storage and regasification units (FSRUs) which significantly lowers the cost and time to completion of small scale LNG import terminals, has lead to a surge in proposals for gas to power projects throughout Africa.
