Asian spot prices for liquefied natural gas (LNG) dropped for a second consecutive week as supply flooded the market, overshadowing demand subdued by a winter that has been milder than average. The average LNG price for January delivery into northeast Asia is estimated to be about $5.50 per million British thermal units (mmBtu), down 10 cents from the previous week, several industry sources said. Angola LNG offered a cargo for delivery over late January to mid-February in a tender that closes next week.

* Cheniere, the biggest U.S. LNG exporter, said in a filing earlier this week that its proposed process would prioritize work on one tank, known as S-101, and allow that tank to return to service in the near term. * The U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) ordered Cheniere to shut two tanks at Sabine on Feb. 8, 2018, after plant workers on Jan. 22, 2018, discovered a 1- to 6-foot-long crack at one tank that leaked fuel into an outer layer.

Proposed projects to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) from North America face an uphill battle against Qatar, which announced plans to further ramp up production to hold onto its position as the world's leading LNG exporter. The United States is on track to overtake Qatar and Australia as the top LNG exporter by 2024, but now will only hold that title for a few years as Qatar announced this week it will boost production by 64% by 2027. Qatar's plans add another headwind for dozens of long-in-development projects already contending with the difficulty of finding customers due to the U.S.-China trade war and a glut of supply worldwide.
Hedge funds and large money managers usually invest with a focus on the long-term horizon and, therefore, short-lived dips or bumps on the charts, usually don't make them change their opinion towards a company. This time it may be different. During the fourth quarter of 2018 we observed increased volatility and a 20% drop in […]
Asian and European LNG prices are falling through the floor as a result of mild winter weather and a new wave of supply from the US, Australia and Russia
ConocoPhillips (COP) unveiled a 10-year plan that targets, among others, $50 billion in free cash flow. Meanwhile, HollyFrontier (HFC) raised its dividend by 6%.
Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") has completed a periodic review of the ratings of Sabine Pass Liquefaction LLC and other ratings that are associated with the same analytical unit. The review was conducted through a portfolio review in which Moody's reassessed the appropriateness of the ratings in the context of the relevant principal methodology(ies), recent developments, and a comparison of the financial and operating profile to similarly rated peers. This publication does not announce a credit rating action and is not an indication of whether or not a credit rating action is likely in the near future.
(Bloomberg) -- Gunvor Group Ltd. agreed to double the maximum amount of liquefied natural gas it plans to buy from a $4 billion export project in Louisiana and said it will recruit additional customers for the terminal.The trading firm will purchase as much as 3 million tons of LNG per year from Commonwealth LNG, the Houston-based developer said Monday in an emailed statement. Gunvor will also market the remaining volumes from the facility, which will be able to produce about 8.4 million tons a year. Commonwealth aims to make a final investment decision in 2021 and begin exports in the second quarter of 2024.The pact is unique in that it allows Commonwealth to shift the burden of finding buyers onto a third-party marketer. LNG developers need to sign enough customers to secure financing, and competition is intensifying. New terminals from Russia to Australia are flooding the market with supply, while the trade war has made it all but impossible for American exporters to sign deals with Chinese buyers.Trading houses, meanwhile, are becoming bigger players in LNG project development. Cheniere Energy Inc., America’s first and biggest shipper of shale gas, struck a 15-year agreement last year to sell the fuel to Vitol Group. Gunvor is on course to lead LNG ship charters this year after seeing its trading of the super-chilled fuel jump in 2018.With Gunvor’s backing, Commonwealth will create “the lowest-cost offering on the U.S. Gulf Coast,” Kalpesh Patel, co-head of LNG trading at Gunvor, said in the statement.Gunvor had reached a preliminary agreement with Commonwealth in June to buy 1.5 million tons of LNG a year for 15 years. Commonwealth may look for more creative ways to price its cargoes such as linking contracts to oil or to foreign gas indexes, even as the U.S. Henry Hub benchmark gains clout, Chief Executive Officer Paul Varello said that month.To contact the reporter on this story: Naureen S.

Cheniere's (LNG) liquefaction platform comprising Corpus Christi liquefaction project on the US Gulf Coast and the Corpus Christi's stage 3 development will have production capacity of nearly 25 mtpa.
(Bloomberg) -- A global glut of natural gas has gotten so massive that U.S. exporters could soon face their worst-case scenario: Halting shipments to get supply and demand back in balance.Prices for the heating and power-plant fuel may collapse in Europe and Asia next year to levels that would force U.S. liquefied natural gas suppliers to curb output, Citigroup Inc. said in a note to clients last week. Morgan Stanley sees as much as 2.7 billion cubic feet a day of American exports curtailed around the second or third quarter, assuming normal weather. That’s about half the volume now being sent abroad.China’s demand for U.S. LNG has plunged amid the trade war, while Europe’s gas storage is almost full and tankers carrying the fuel are taking unusually long journeys in search of better prices. That’s created a “toxic witch’s brew” that’s making it harder to find a home for American exports, according to Madeline Jowdy, senior director of global gas and LNG for S&P Global Platts in New York.“It’s also a harbinger of bigger troubles ahead for U.S. exporters in the second quarter of next year, when global demand is at its weakest point and the U.S. will have even more volumes to place” as new export terminals start up, Jowdy said in an email.Capping LNG production is an extreme measure, but the idea is gaining traction as new terminals from the U.S. to Australia unleash exports faster than demand can catch up. Gas for near-term delivery in Asia has lost half its value in the past 14 months, with the Dutch benchmark nearly matching that decline. A mild winter would make the glut even worse -- bad news for U.S. suppliers like Cheniere Energy Inc. and Sempra Energy.In the past three years, soaring gas output from shale basins has vaulted the U.S. into the ranks of the world’s largest LNG producers. The nation is widely seen as a so-called swing supplier because its exports can respond quickly to a volatile market.Curtailments can happen when customers such as trading houses, which resell the fuel to utilities and other end users, refuse to load cargoes because prices are too low to cover shipping costs and still make a profit. The cancellations can force exporters to cap, or “shut in,” LNG production as their storage tanks fill up.While customers of American LNG export terminals have to pay a fee to reserve the fuel under long-term contracts, they can opt out of buying with 30 to 60 days’ notice. That’s in contrast to traditional contracts from suppliers like Qatar and Australia, which require buyers to take or pay for a fixed amount whether they need it or not.Singapore’s Pavilion Energy Pte said this month that it canceled the loading of an LNG cargo from the U.S., though Pavilion said the decision was based on logistics and didn’t directly attribute it to low gas prices. But additional shut-ins of American exports could follow, Michael Webber, managing partner of Webber Research & Advisory LLC, said in an email.With the exception of the Pavilion cargo, though, buyers of U.S. LNG have continued to load shipments. Traders will likely need to have a view of at least two months out to cancel, Peter Abdo, chief commercial officer for LNG and origination at Uniper Global Commodities SE, said at the Bloomberg Commodity Investor Forum in London this month. Uniper doesn’t plan to refuse cargoes, he said.The top executive at Cheniere, the largest U.S. gas exporter, has dismissed concerns about shut-ins.The question “never ceases to amaze me,” Chief Executive Officer Jack Fusco said during the company’s third-quarter earnings call last month. Cheniere’s cargoes “are extremely competitive,” Fusco said. A representative for Cheniere declined to comment on possible LNG production curtailments, while Sempra declined to discuss commercial arrangements.So far, the premium for winter gas over near-term prices has spurred record American shipments. But European gas prices could potentially slip below $3 per million British thermal units in the spring and summer, potentially forcing U.S. exports to shut in, Citigroup said in its report. Gas at the Dutch Title Transfer Facility is now trading near $5.Benchmark gas prices in the U.S., Europe and Asia are expected to remain under pressure next year from strong supply growth, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. analysts said in a research note Monday.“There’s too much gas in Asia, there’s too much gas in Europe and that means the U.S. may need to be the swing supplier,” Devin McDermott, an equities analyst and commodities strategist for Morgan Stanley in New York, said in a telephone interview.(Updates with Goldman Sachs note in penultimate paragraph)\--With assistance from Stephen Stapczynski.To contact the reporters on this story: Naureen S.
