The gas and LNG markets are undergoing significant change, bringing about opportunities and challenges for many across the industry. Key developments faced by our clients include:
- Gas’ role in the transition to low-carbon economies, particularly in the power, transport and industrial sectors
- Sourcing alternative gas pipeline or LNG supplies as domestic production declines
- Supply diversification incentivising the buildout of LNG infrastructure and providing fuel switching opportunities for users
- An increasing range of LNG sourcing and contracting models available to existing and emerging buyers
- Evolution of gas trading hubs and pricing mechanisms changing the optionality in purchasing agreements
