Report summary

Following a bearish summer in Asia Pacific and Europe, our attention now shifts to winter.  Will increasing Pacific LNG supply be sufficient to support Asian winter demand? And just how much LNG will be available to Europe? We have analysed global LNG fundamentals to determine the likely winter outlook for LNG balances and prices in the Pacific. Similarly, we have looked at NW European fundamentals to determine the likely winter outlook for gas balances and prices.
