Who will hold the pricing power in the coming years as the global LNG supply & demand balance shifts – consumers or suppliers? Will Asia follow Europe's lead by moving away from oil indexed gas price? The Australian east coast is potentially only weeks away from its first LNG exports. Natural gas prices in the east coast domestic market have slumped to record lows, the global LNG spot market is awash with supplies and oil prices are falling rapidly. Northeast Asian LNG prices are almost 50% below levels seen this time last year, as consumer demand in the region is too weak to absorb the supply glut. The fourth annual Argus Australia and Global LNG Markets conference examines the impact of these changing supply and demand fundamentals on the global LNG market and the Australian east coast domestic gas market. It looks at shifting pricing paradigms, as the LNG market grapples with new supply contracts linked to the US Henry Hub, consumer pressure to move away from the oil index and the challenges of developing liquid gas hubs in Asia. It aims to answer the key questions from the perspective of the international LNG industry and the Australian east coast domestic gas market.
