However, it is still a budding industry because Russia and Iran- owners of the largest gas reserves in the world are still fledgling LNG exporters (Economides and Wood 2009). According to Kumar et al. (2011) LNG is also a clean substitute over petrol and diesel. Moreover the Asian tigers like Japan, China and India are still growing their economies (ExxonMobil 2010: 8). Thus, the Asian tigers’ LNG demand, the eco-nature of LNG, coupled with Russia and Iran’s LNG exports - can create a more robust LNG market in the future. This paper examines the existing and future market of LNG – in the light of major LNG players in each region.
