LNG in World Markets

Brass Bids Open, But Problems Remain
July 29, 2011
Bids to build a subsea pipeline and other works at Brass LNG have finally been opened and there are some signs of revitalized foreign interest in the scheme. Yet real progress remains elusive for Nigeria’s second LNG export project.
 
Mejillones Moves To Tolling As Consumers Look Elsewhere(2)
July 01, 2011
The shift to a tolling business model appears to be an attempt both to pre-empt growing pressure from Chilean regulators and to placate major gas users, who will have the opportunity to procure and import their own LNG instead of relying on GDF Suez.
 
Shtokman Sees Tightening Market As Way Forward(2)
July 01, 2011
Although bringing the project online was recently compared to ‘conquering the cosmos’, Russia’s long awaited Shtokman LNG continues to promise an investment decision in the coming months.
 
LNG Newbuild Resurgence Extends to FSRUs(2)
July 01, 2011
The LNG newbuild bonanza seen this year has finally spilled over into orders for floating storage and regasfication units with the order by Norway’s Höegh LNG for two 170,000 m3 FSRUs. These are the first custom built FSRUs rather than conversions of older vessels.
 
Abu Dhabi Advances Replacement Train(2)
July 01, 2011
Abu Dhabi plans to install a new 3.3 MMt/y LNG train that will replace two of the three older ones, each with a capacity of 1.25 MMt/y and are now more than 30 years old. Startup of the new unit is scheduled for 2018.
 
Another Delay, Cost Blowout For Woodside’s Pluto LNG(2)
July 01, 2011
In another setback to the commencement of LNG production at Woodside’s Pluto project, the Perth-based company has announced that first shipments from its flagship development are now targeted for March 2012. Costs have been revised upwards by another A$900 million to A$14.9 billion.
 
Summer Strength Continues for Charters and Spot Prices(2)
July 01, 2011
Hopes of spot LNG buyers for some sustained relief from high prices this month proved short-lived. A cargo sold into Argentina at $15/MMBtu and charter rates for LNG carriers have now reached $100,000 per day.
 
“Ponzi Scheme” Keeps US Market Well Supplied(2)
July 01, 2011
Conjuring up images of the dot-com bubble of the late-1990s, the industry leveled charges of unprofessional journalism against a story by the New York Times claiming shale gas was just a giant Ponzi scheme. Regardless, prices remained just above $4.00/MMBtu by month end.
 
UK High Summer Prices, Softening Seasonal Spreads(2)
July 01, 2011
Traditionally, utilities draw down gas from storage during the winter months, building them up again in the summer, when gas is available at a seasonal discount. This year, however, that ebb and flow between seasons and storage is not reflected in prices.
 
NBP Steady In Spite Of Ample Supplies, Lower Oil Prices(2)
July 01, 2011
Prices at the UK’s National Balancing Point are remaining stubbornly high at over $9/MMBtu, this represents about a $4/MMBtu discount to spot prices in Asia. This is contributing to a modest slowdown in LNG deliveries into Europe, with 88 cargoes coming into the market in June, down from 98 in May and 108 in April.
