In 2021, European countries imported 5 838 TWh of natural gas, an increase of 12% compared to 2020 (5 235 TWh).
Due to their geographical position, Spain, France and the United Kingdom have significant regasification capacities which allow large imports of LNG. LNG also accounts for 55%, 35% and 29% of their supply respectively.
The IEA also predicts that the proportion of LNG in European imports should rise to 35% by 2030.
