Global Gas and LNG Markets: Contracting and Pricing

In-person event


During this highly specialized interactive one-day training workshop, we have looked at all main aspects of the global and European LNG markets, with a focus on contracting, pricing and shipping. The workshop addressed LNG supply and demand; LNG contracting issues (including how the contracting model has changed drastically since 2019); long-term Vs. hub purchasing; issues of gas and LNG pricing; the difference between various export and import markets; the impact of US LNG exports in 2016 on the global market; the impact of the war in Ukraine on the gas and LNG market. We also looked at LNG shipping and the development of offshore technologies such as FSRUs and FLNG.

Why participate in this program

Commercial transactions in the global gas and particularly LNG markets are becoming evermore complex with compounded financial and legal risks. As the entire value chain of LNG procurement is becoming more complicated, a thorough understanding of contracting and pricing in global LNG markets remains a key determinant of commercial success.

In 2023 Europe will continue to be one of the key players on the global LNG market and it is becoming more pertinent for European policy experts to understand this sector.

This short yet comprehensive training course was designed to enable energy professionals to come to grips with the key drivers of price determination and contract structures in the global LNG trade.

Course participants took away a sound understanding of LNG contract negotiating positions, allowing them to make the right decisions on sourcing and negotiating on future contracts from a position of strength and knowledge.
