Are China's NOCs still over-contracted?

Report summary

The combination of high legacy-contract LNG prices, lower-than-expected demand and increasing competition is challenging China's NOCs' business models. In 2016, we saw the NOCs negotiate with suppliers to reduce offtake where they can, divert cargoes into the spot market, and put more effort into marketing gas domestically. In this analysis, we compare and contrast these strategies, and reflect on the NOCs' contract execution and spot activities.
