In this episode of The LNG Big Chill podcast, I’m joined by Andrew Buckland and Robert Sims from our short term LNG team. We discuss the potential for under-utilisation of US LNG facilities, how much LNG Europe can take – and whether a new coal policy in South Korea will provide some upside this winter.

Topics discussed include:

  • LNG started the winter with record low Asian spot prices.
  • The rate of supply growth is outstripping organic demand growth – particularly in the Asia Pacific region.
  • The potential price risk associated with the expiry of the current Russia-Ukraine transit agreement at the end of 2019.
  • South Korea’s recent move to improve air quality by restricting coal burn through the winter. What could it mean for the LNG oversupply?
  • Recent moves in LNG ship charters rates – and the impact on short term prices.
