Changes in LNG seasonality: the growing impact of weather


Changes in LNG seasonality: the growing impact of weather

Report summary

The LNG supply profile is changing. The gas liquefaction process is sensitive to temperature and the greater geographic spread of new LNG projects means weather will increasingly drive the seasonality of LNG supply. Impacts will vary but most striking is growing risk in Asia-Pacific, particularly in the winter. However, greater risk brings some opportunities as well.
