Oil majors Shell and Total are said to be considering building terminals and power plants in new markets.
The move comes after companies have invested billions in plants to help produce liquefied natural gas (LNG) in place such as the US and Australia.
Laurent Vivier, president for the gas division of Total, said the company was ready to go downstream “as much as it takes” to unlock gas demand.
He said: “We need to be present in downstream ourselves, to create demand and unlock bottlenecks along the chain including regasification, pipeline and power plants.”
