Report summary

The recent uptick in coal prices has narrowed the price differential to spot LNG in Japan and South Korea, two primary market for the traded fuel in Asia. Both fuel types are going through a different price cycle. While coal prices have strengthened in the past few months on the back of supply reforms in China and production cutbacks elsewhere after years of losses, spot LNG, though stable, is under pressure due to emerging supply glut. Quite a contrast, and ideal recipe for competition! But, we are not there yet! Why?
