The LNG Big Chill: April 2020

As the coronavirus outbreak and oil price crash continue to change the market, we look at how the Chinese gas market is recovering, what lockdown means for Indian LNG demand and the potential for coal-to-gas switching in Japan and South Korea. We also discuss how far gas demand will fall in Europe this quarter, and the implications for storage. And we ask: how will the global LNG supply outlook change?

What's the outlook for global LNG markets?
