New US LNG projects are seeing an uptick in activity as Asian demand builds but only a few are expected to make it over the line, shipbroker and consultant Poten & Partners said.

Speaking in a webinar, Poten head of Middle East and South Asia Wong Kit Ling described a “flurry of activity” but said each project is facing specific challenges.

She described how developers Tellurian and NextDecade are scaling back their projects in an effort to get them sanctioned.
