SESSION 1 – GLOBAL LNG STRATEGY PANEL DISCUSSION - Determining LNG’s Role Through To 2040: Key Disruptors & Their Consequences

Disruptors & their consequences for LNG

  • COVID-19, energy transitions and the Russia-Ukraine crisis – A review of their current impacts on macro energy
  • Different approaches from key players to balance their energy security and costs with their decarbonisation pledges
  • The outlook for LNG demand and supply to 2040: What is changing temporarily and structurally?

Demand patterns

  • The range of commitments from countries to include LNG as a sustainable transition fuel
  • The changing focus of Europe from a market of last resort to a market of prime demand
  • The EU Repower Initiative – how sustainable is EU LNG demand in the 2020s and beyond?
  • What is the LNG demand outlook in China when it emerges from lockdowns?
  • The vulnerability of price sensitive markets and new importers

Supply patterns

  • Are 100Mtpa of new liquefaction FIDs feasible in the next 1-2 years?
  • What are the limits to growth?

Commercial trends

  • Are long-term contracts going to be the price to pay for supply security?
  • The outlook for commoditisation and increasing volumes of spot trading – is that consistent with the current business environment?

SESSION 2 - Asia Pacific LNG Leaders’ Panel: Key Considerations For Asian LNG Demand Growth

The trilemma

  • Achieving energy security, affordability and decarbonisation: What does this mean in the current business environment to Asian buyers?
  • Could rapid decarbonisation policies lead to undermining energy security and possible lead to further GHG emissions?
  • The challenge of increasing levels of “energy poverty” and a push towards coal, oil and nuclear. How much gas demand will be lost?

Addressing supply security whilst retaining flexibility

  • The impact of sudden, new and strong demand competition from Europe
  • How are Asian buyers responding to securing the LNG supply they firmly need?
    • The resurgence of long-term contracts
    • The value of operational flexibility in contracts
    • LNG pricing considerations and trends: oil indexation vs HH vs spot indexes
    • How can tradability and liquidity be improved to further optimise global supply and demand?
