OPEC’s Plan to Cut Crude Oil Production Surges Asian LNG price to USD7.40/MMBtu

China: The decision taken by OPEC countries and Russia to cut their crude oil production, to overcome the oversupply condition of crude oil has positively impacted the Asian LNG market. The Asian spot LNG price has increased by 30 cents from last week and this has reached to around USD7.40 per million British thermal units (MMBtu). Around 80% of LNG contract has been linked to crude oil price and this step would not only increase the crude oil price but also surge the price of spot and long term contract of LNG.

Moreover, growing focus on expansion of gas pipeline infrastructure, rising demand for natural gas from downstream sectors, declining LNG prices coupled with implementation of favorable government policies is boosting demand for LNG across the globe. Increasing focus on development of adequate support infrastructure in various developing as well as developed economies is expected to boost LNG demand in the coming years.
