Asian LNG pricing and low oil prices

Report summary

Asian LNG pricing is impacted by lower oil prices in different ways – they impact prevailing contract prices because most Asian LNG contracts are linked to oil; they impact the price of spot LNG through the interplay of contract prices and crude costs; and they could impact future oil indexed long term LNG contracts through impact on their economics.
