U.S. LNG FOR EUROPE ANEW
OGJ - Europe's natural gas market is evolving from politically driven projects to commercial agreements, and US suppliers will need to move more aggressively on those terms if they expect to be a substantive part of it, speakers suggested at a Mar. 20 conference. "US suppliers have an opportunity to step in now and line up customers when prices are low. The biggest question is who will take the strategic risk," said Mindaugus Jusius, chief executive at AB Klaipedos Nafta, Lithuania's state oil products and gas terminal company.
"The US government did its part to start reforming policies, but US gas is owned by companies which need to start moving the conversation about liquefied natural gas in Europe from political to commercial terms," added Amos J. Hochstein, senior vice-president for marketing at Tellurian Inc. in Houston, during the discussion on expanding global gas infrastructure hosted by LNG Allies and Our Energy Moment.
Hochstein added, however, that it will be necessary for the US, as well as Europe, to increase its gas pipeline capacity because Permian basin production associated with crude oil has risen so dramatically. "It's at a critical point; $150 billion of new infrastructure will be needed domestically. With all the growth in the Permian, there's not capacity to ship gas to Louisiana," Hochstein said. "If governments in both the US and Europe aren't willing to put infrastructure in place, real progress won't be made."
