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.
