中国石化新闻网讯 据路透社4月23日报道，四名贸易消息人士表示，由于当前全球天然气需求锐减，天然气和液化天然气价格跌至创纪录低点，切尼尔能源公司（Cheniere Energy）、路易斯安那州Sabine Pass和德克萨斯州科珀斯克里斯蒂（Corpus Christi）6月份装船的大部分货物被取消货运。
Refinitiv的数据显示，在亚洲，6月交货的天然气价格徘徊在接近每百万英热 200美元的水平，仅比美国Henry Hub的天然气价格高出0.10美元左右。

Buyers in Asia and Europe cancel around 20 U.S. LNG cargoes for June loading: sources
Buyers in Asia and Europe have cancelled the loading of around 20 cargoes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the United States in June, four trade sources said on Wednesday.
The cancellations came as the coronavirus pandemic dampened gas demand around the world, with gas and LNG prices tumbling to record lows.
The majority of the cargoes were cancelled from Cheniere Energy’s plants, Sabine Pass in Louisiana and Corpus Christi in Texas for June loading, the sources said.
One of them said 10 different companies cancelled a total of 17 cargoes from the Cheniere projects, with five from the Freeport plant in Texas. Another source confirmed that at least three companies cancelled Freeport cargoes.
Cheniere said it would not comment on commercial discussions with its customers and added that its LNG contracts allow flexibility, including the option not to lift cargoes but pay a liquefaction fee.
The companies that cancelled cargoes include energy majors, such as Royal Dutch Shell, Total and BP, several European buyers, such as Enel and Uniper and several Asian companies, two of the sources said.
The coronavirus pandemic has pressured LNG buyers around the world as stocks were already full after two warm winters, with the global LNG market heavily oversupplied.
In Asia, prices are hovering close to $2 per million British thermal units (mmBtu) for June delivery, traders said on Wednesday, which is just around $0.10 per mmBtu above the price for gas on the U.S. Henry Hub, Refinitiv data shows.
