Asian LNG prices touch more than 10-year low


LONDON — Asian spot prices for liquefied natural gas (LNG) plummeted to multi-year lows this week, pressured by a lack of demand to consume abundant supplies.

As milder-than-usual winter in both Asia and Europe is curbing demand, there were deals done below $4.00 per million British thermal units (mmBtu) this week, the lowest level in more than 10 years.

The average LNG price for March delivery into northeast Asia was estimated at around $4.00 per mmBtu, down $0.60 per mmBtu from the previous week, several sources said.

“Warm winter is a clear reason for such a low price,” an LNG trader said.

The Brunei LNG export plant sold a cargo for March 30-31 delivery at about $3.90 to $3.95 per mmBtu earlier in the week.
