Report summary

The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has authorised Freeport LNG to construct and operate. This is good news for international markets including Japan. The Japanese utility appetite for US LNG now leaves limited scope for additional LNG into Japan until 2022. LNG sellers seeking rollovers of existing contracts and new supply deals will struggle to secure market before then. But thereafter the risk passes to Japan when new supply sources will become essential.
