The expansion of liquefaction capacity under construction in the Atlantic basin is located in Algeria, with an increase of 5 MTPA (6bcma) in Arzew- GL3Z (Gassi Touil) 1) and in the United States, where the commissioning of the four trains of Sabine Pass with 5 MTPA each (6bcma), will gradually come on stream between 2015 and 2017.

The projects with planned commissioning dates before 2020, which are not under construction yet, are located in Canada (Goldboro LNG with 10MTPA/14 bcma) and the United States (10 different projects with at total liquefaction capacity of 107MTPA/147 bcma). The particular case of the LNG projects in the US is explained below. In addition, there are three projects in Nigeria with a total increase of the liquefaction capacity of 38.4 MTPA (53 bcma) and one project in Canada which is still under study.
In the Pacific basin, most of the liquefaction projects under construction are locat- ed in Australia, which is expected to triplicate its current liquefaction capacity up to 73MTPA (100bcma) by 2017. Other projects are under construction in Indonesia (3MTPA/4bcma), Malaysia (2MTPA/3bcma) and Colombia (1MTPA/1.4bcma).
