The LNG industry has developed into a mature industry over its thirty-year history. The LNG industry, is transforming to meet the needs and realities of the future. New markets are opening in developing countries, such as India and China. The spot market, selling from excess LNG plant capacity, is continuing to grow. The large and highly competitive US gas market is beginning to absorb more LNG. Gas reserves are increasingly being discovered in offshore reservoirs, often in deep water.

In the future, the industry will likely continue to evolve from the paradigm of shipping LNG from large onshore LNG plants to onshore import terminals backed by long-term sales contracts. Offshore LNG plants 1,2,3 and import terminals 4,5 offer a cost-effective solution to supplying gas to customers. One of the greatest challenges for these plants and terminals is the offshore transfer of LNG. ExxonMobil saw the need to improve the technology for this transfer and, in cooperation with Senior Flexonics and IMPaC, has developed a scheme that is economic, safe and reliable.
