Q1 2018 North America LNG projects update: uptick in marketing activity

Report summary

Buyers are returning to the US market in bigger numbers than they have at any time for the past three years. Some 4.2 mmtpa of long-term sales of US LNG have been agreed upon in recent months with Shell, CNPC, Trafigura and Edison. All of the deals have been with either Cheniere or Venture Global. Cheniere looks almost certain to proceed this year with Train 3 at Corpus Christi, which will be its eighth train overall. Venture Global now has 3 mmtpa in sales for its proposed Calcasieu Pass project, of which 2 mmtpa is with Shell. Shell's purchase is noteworthy given that Venture Global plans to use small-scale modular technology similar to that being installed at Elba Island LNG, where Shell is the sole offtaker.
