By the end of 2025, world liquefication capacity is expected to reach almost 600 MTPA (78 Bcf/d).

As of February 2021, LNG liquefication projects totaling 900 MTPA of capacity were proposed. Most of these projects will be uneconomical and will not be built. The majority of these projects are in the United States and Canada.

The liquefaction projects that came online in 2020 were: Freeport  LNG T2-T3 (10.2 MTPA, 1.3 Bcf/d), Cameron LNG T2-T3 (8.0 MTPA, 1.0 Bcf/d) and Elba Island T4-T10 (1.75 MTPA, 0.2 Bcf/d), all of which are located in the United States.
