Anticipated growth in LNG supply combined with fewer open newbuilding deliveries is expected to contribute to an increase in demand for shipping in 2022, according to shipbroker Fearnley LNG.

In its 'LNG Shipping 2021 annual report to January 2022' Fearnley said it sees a more balanced LNG market in 2022 as more product comes onstream and some facilities that have been having problems ramp up again.
