LNG imports to the US will increase significantly. While securing LNG supply through long-term contracts will play an important role, acquiring spot LNG from numerous foreign producers will also be a popular practice. Likewise, gas specifications of Pacific Rim countries are significantly richer than the US counterparts. There may be changes toward US specifications if sufficient long-term contracts are in place; however, it will take years. Consequently, US receiving terminals must handle imported LNG having wide compositional variations. The receiving terminal is responsible for assuring that the regasified LNG meets US pipeline specifications. Certain compositional adjustments on batche
