LNG Industry Foundations: Supplies, Market, and Trading (LIF3)
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is an increasingly important fuel in the global energy marketplace. You will learn about the potential supplies and their characteristics and their uses in the different market sectors. Recent changes in contract terms, pricing, economics, and the availability of spot cargoes; all of these are transforming the industry from what was previously a regional market to what is now a global source of gas supply. The growth of regional trading hubs for gas and LNG has opened up the opportunities for futures and derivatives trading. Additionally, the Russia-Ukraine conflict is having a significant impact on European LNG demand and future energy policy.
