LNG contract trends

Report summary

Contracting activity has returned to its highest level since 2018, with more than 80 mmtpa of SPAs and HOAs signed this year. US LNG continues building momentum with operators pushing projects towards FID. European buyers have taken a greater share of the market but the majority of volumes signed are going to traders, upstream and portfolio players (more than 50% of the overall contracts signed). In the last quarter only, about 19 mmtpa of LNG SPAs have been signed with QatarEnergy and Sinopec signing one of the longest deals in recent history and Sempra Infrastructure and ConocoPhillips converting a 5 mmtpa an HOA in a SPA, amongst others.
