As natural gas consumption has dropped drastically in the energy sector, the minimum quantity of natural gas required for the operation of the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Terminal will twice surpass the projected demand by energy producers.

This shows that the existing designated supply model is no longer sustainable.
