Global large-scale LNG terminals market: Commoditization of LNG

LNG has turned out to be a global commodity ever since the first LNG cargo was shipped from an LNG facility in Algeria in 1964. Supply surplus combined with increasing demand is essential for the growth of the global liquid commodity market. This is because, during stressed situations, the producers and consumers prefer long-term fixed agreements than trading openly. Factors such as increasing diversity of suppliers and buyers, rising installation of floating regasification plants, and growing liquidity of tradable LNG have resulted in the commoditization of LNG similar to oil. Thus, the global LNG market is gradually turning out to be more transparent, liquid, and efficient.

“The global commercialization of LNG has opened up new avenues for the stakeholders. The plunging process increases the usage of LNG, boosting coal-to-gas switching. As the supply surplus may act as a threat and overwhelm the existing contracts, the producers and importers of LNG consider active trading on a spot basis which results in reduced prices. As a result, players in the market are expanding their trading teams to manage excess cargo flows and navigate the open market,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on oil and gas.
