Global LNG Exports Reach 362MT in 2019
During the fourth quarter of 2019, spot LNG freight rates continued to strengthen with average reported headline rates for MEGI/X-DF LNG carriers increasing by 66% from $74,800 per day to $123,800 per day, according to Flex LNG.
Rates increased steadily due to higher demand preparing for winter in Northern Asia, as well as continued floating storage, Flex LNG said.
Trading patterns and LNG pricing however, continue to favor Europe as the main destination for incremental uncommitted LNG volumes due to the low spread in gas prices between Asia and Europe, as well as greater infrastructure capacity in Europe for regasification and storage.
According to industry sources, global LNG exports reached 362 million tonnes for the full year of 2019, which represents year on year growth of approximately 11%.
The forecast of a record year for LNG Final Investment Decision (FIDs) in 2019 proved to be true with approximately 71 million metric tonne per annum (“mmtpa”) sanctioned in 2019, as FID was reached on Nigeria LNG Train 7 with a total capacity of 7.7 mmtpa before year-end.
However, the sharp increase in global liquefaction capacity is far from over yet, as several large greenfield and brownfield projects are also expected to take FID in 2020 and 2021.
Four LNG carriers were reported delivered in the fourth quarter of 2019, bringing the year count to 38 LNG carriers and three floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs).
During the fourth quarter 2019, fourteen new orders for LNG carriers were reported. By the end of the quarter, there were 510 active vessels above 125,000 cbm in the global LNG carrier fleet, excluding FSRUs.
