Q4 North America LNG projects update

Report summary

Interest in North American LNG has continued throughout Q4. Several North American projects are fully permitted, have signed or are negotiating Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) contracts, and are close to securing enough LNG Sales contracts to raise debt. As such, we could see a wave of Final Investment Decisions (FIDs) in 2023 and 2024. However, it is a competitive market and not all projects will go ahead. There is momentum behind several projects, but rising construction and borrowing costs are creating challenges. Higher costs will mean higher liquefaction fees are required to meet developer hurdle rates and may mean some signed SPAs need to be reopened, delaying project sanctioning and first production. How are projects best placed to overcome these inflationary pressures, and which will take FID?
