Why choose ICIS?

The fragile balance of long-term global LNG supply soon shifts when events occur that affect volume. Accurate forecasting is vital for LNG traders and analysts; it also impacts profit for utilities and integrated energy companies. But it’s incredibly hard to be confident when plant outages, new gas supply, plant start-ups, gas rerouting, debottlenecking and other events put your careful assumptions out of kilter.

Our constantly updated two-year forecast takes the pressure off. Our LNG experts focus on keeping abreast of events as they occur, interpreting the impact, and then updating the forecast instantly. That way, you get the most up-to-date view of what’s changed and why it matters.

Choose to act immediately - or combine and contrast our forecast with your internal sources for further validation. Either way, you’ll enjoy increased confidence in your forward view.
