Blu Jaz Cafe | 11 Bali Lane, Singapore
Nicholas Fulford, Global Head of Gas and LNG, Gaffney Cline and Associates
Join the Asia Chapter & SPE Singapore for a presentation on "Moving Parts in the LNG Value Chain." The global gas sector is undergoing a number of fundamental changes which will change the relationship between the seller and the buyer of LNG. After many decades, the old conventions based on long-term take or pay contracts, usually oil-indexed and often with restrictive destination clauses, are beginning to crumble. The entry of the US with its tolling model and low wholesale prices is creating considerable disruption on the supply side, as LNG developers in other parts of the world try to compete. Changes on the buyer's side are also bringing about new pressures, especially as many Asian markets follow North America and Europe and seek to establish customer choice, retail competition, and third-party access to key infrastructure, including LNG regas. When the impact of technology is factored in, with both floating LNG (FLNG) and Floating Storage and Regasification Units (FSRUs) gaining in popularity, the LNG sector is facing something of a perfect storm. New markets for LNG are creating exciting new opportunities as well.
The presentation will seek to piece together the moving parts in the LNG value chain and set out ways in which buyers, sellers, traders, and aggregators can interact with one another to capture the undoubted growth opportunities that will exist over the decade to come. The presentation will also speculate on emerging pricing mechanisms and the wholesale/retail market developments, which will be most influential.
Registration is S$50 for AIPN and SPE members, S$75 for non-members and S$30 for students, payable at the door. RSVP is required, as space is limited.
