Global Gas - Why LNG is not enough
The truth about LNG
Liquefied Natural Gas or LNG is suddenly everyone’s favourite again, and I have been approached more than once recently to help setup specifically an LNG business. It seems everyone wants in, everyone wants a slice of the pie before the LNG opportunities disappear again, or so it seems.
But wanting to build and LNG desk and capability and looking to add LNG experts to your business alone is going at it the wrong way. Think about it: What is LNG? And more importantly, what really influences LNG markets, prices, supply and end-user demand? LNG is Natural Gas, nothing else. The fact that it is super-cooled for transport and needs special infrastructure, ships, and facilities doesn’t take away the fact that at the end it’s the same old methane molecules you and I heat our kettle with at home. The only thing new with the emergence of traded LNG is that now large regional gas markets and many new smaller domestic gas markets are truly connected for the first time. And this is why you don’t need a specific LNG desk, but what you do need is a Global Gas desk and Global Gas capability to make sense of the emerging LNG renaissance, and most importantly deliver superior profitability from the inevitable large investments and risks you need to consider when stepping into Global Gas with LNG.
