The depth of the US LNG export market continues to grow with the commissioning of Train 4 at Sabine Pass and further US projects to ramp up later in 2017 and 2018. US cargoes have headed to a range of global buyers and the uncertainty over trade flows to Europe is intensifying.
ICIS will analyse the outlook for US LNG production alongside a short-term summer supply, demand and price view of the European gas markets.
LNG deliveries to Europe have risen year on year in April, notably from Qatar, and despite hub prices falling from the peak levels of the first quarter.
The increase has supported gas injections into European storage sites but US LNG has so far played only a small supply role into southern Europe with better netbacks achievable into other markets such as Mexico.
