The current global economic slowdown has led to a decline in LNG imports and spot LNG purchases of most countries. Decline in LNG demand coupled with steady LNG production will lead to a LNG supply surplus to 2011-12. Even major importing companies like Osaka Gas Co., Ltd and Chinese petroleum Corporation have stopped or postponed spot purchases of LNG due to poor demand forecasts.
