Quarterly Global LNG Service Analyzes New Investment Patterns

LNG storage

HOUSTON (August 10, 2016) – Enhancing the existing coverage of the Stratas Advisors’ Global LNG service, the global energy advisory firm today announces the initiation of quarterly research coverage. Within the 3Q16 initiation report, researchers highlight that suppliers and consumers alike are refocusing on developing lower-risk, smaller-scale LNG facilities.

“ExxonMobil acquired InterOil during the quarter, effectively sharing the risks and costs with global super-major Total in ongoing efforts to develop world-scale liquefaction capacity,” said George Popps, midstream manager. “This mirrors the lower-risk position taken by Shell in the quarter, which delayed development indefinitely at two major liquefaction projects in North America.”

We see lower appetite to invest given depressed global natural gas and LNG prices on the backs of a worldwide supply glut with low energy prices. Stratas Advisors’ Global LNG service, with an outlook to 2030, provides a vision of the future of this evolving industry and how its participants can strategically plan to maximize returns in the current price environment.

The Global LNG service offers timely views of what industry players can expect, from new export and import infrastructure to natural gas and LNG trade flows to short- and long-term gas price forecasts around the globe. Stratas Advisors covers nearly 500 proposed, under construction and operational liquefaction and regasification terminals across six continents, and provides subscribers with market analyses, annual forecast revisions, quarterly updates and ongoing fundamental analysis.

George Popps, midstream manager for Stratas, is responsible for research and development of the Global LNG and Global Natural Gas services covering LNG and pipeline infrastructure, international flows and pricing.

These quarterly reports are available to members of the firm’s Global LNG service. Stratas Advisors’ experts can address global gas markets and offer insight about the LNG industry.
