LNG contract trends

Report summary

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has dramatically impacted gas and LNG markets. Due to the conflict, many traditional LNG buyers will not procure spot gas or LNG from Russia. These buyers also will not renew or sign additional LNG contracts with Russian sellers. Spot prices remain high and buyers have returned to long-term contracting to protect national energy security. As a result, long-term contracting is off to a fast start in 2021 with more than 10 mmtpa signed to end-market users. Chinese buyers have been dominant in the market, signing more than 8 mmtpa of LNG SPA predominantly from pre-FID US projects.
