US LNG into Europe - not for everyone

Report summary

Our expectation of Atlantic Basin price differentials suggests that full-cycle economics of most US LNG will be marginal. Despite this, Europe is still likely to receive significant volumes of US LNG, but we expect most US LNG coming into Europe to be dictated by global LNG pricing dynamics, and flows are likely to be volatile.
