Saudi Arabia: Speculation over LNG imports

The idea of Saudi Arabia importing liquefied natural gas has cropped up regularly, often in concert with a mooted LNG import terminal on the Red Sea coast. Time and again it has been dismissed, not least because of the cost of importing gas at the full market price while providing it to domestic users at heavily subsidised rates. However, the kingdom’s need to ramp up energy output and its ambitious plans to industrialise could mean it has no choice but to import the fuel – and further cuts to energy subsidies could make it easier, assuming they go ahead as planned.
