LNG market developments: Paradigm shifts or short-term yips?
SEMINAR 3 | Tokyo Back-to-Business Program Series 2019
With the world moving towards a global gas renaissance, LNG looks certain to be a key part of the global energy mix. Indeed, there has been widespread talk of the LNG market showing signs of "commoditization," amidst greater liquidity, more flexible contract terms (including destination freedom) and the potential development of LNG trading hubs. As the playing field continues to shift, significant questions remain. How does LNG fit into the ever-increasing emphasis on renewable energy? Will we see a trend towards industry consolidation and standardization as the market expands? Will a sufficient number of LNG projects take final investment decision, or FID, in order to keep up with demand and how might those projects be financed? How will market changes impact the ability for greenfield export projects to take FID and obtain long-term project finance? How might contracting practices and strategies change? In particular, are price reviews becoming increasingly confrontational and, if so, what might be driving such a trend? Are some of the developments we are seeing temporary reactions to current market conditions or do they represent more fundamental industry changes? Our esteemed panelists will discuss the kinds of changes that are taking place currently and contemplate what kinds of changes we might see going forward as the LNG market matures.
