Taiwan’s Jan-May LNG imports rise

Taiwan imported 7.16 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the January-May period, up 11.1 percent from the same period a year before, according to the customs data.

Qatar, the world’s largest LNG exporter remained the biggest supplier of the fuel to Taiwan in the period under review with 2.26 million tonnes. These volumes rose 5.4 percent on year, the data by the Directorate General of Customs shows.

Malaysia was the second-biggest supplier of LNG to Taiwan in the January-May period with 1.18 million tonnes, followed by Russia that supplied 0.89 million tonnes while Australia delivered 0.88 million tonnes of the chilled fuel to Taiwan.

The rest of the LNG imports came from Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Brunei, Trinidad and Tobago, US, Nigeria, Oman and Angola.

Taiwan, the world’s fifth largest LNG buyer, paid about $3.12 billion for these LNG imports as compared to $2.49 billion in 2017, according to the data.
