LNG Export Opportunities – The Strategies and Challenges for North American Gas Export

LNG export from North America has been moved to the forefront of the latest global gas industry developments. Cheniere’s recent groundbreaking sales purchase agreements - the first of their kind – have been quickly followed by other agreements in the United States and Canada. LNG export in North America is now a tangible reality and is poised for significant commercial success.

Aside from the much-publicized Sabine Pass agreements, a number of other promising projects are underway along the East, West, and Gulf coastlines of the US: Kitimat and Coos Bay have received approvals and are moving ahead swiftly with progress on LNG exports. Shell has also announced its own plans for export capacity in Canada in recent weeks; and North American gas producers are now focusing heavily on export as a key part of their strategy to maximize commercial benefit from domestic production.

These projects are developing rapidly to take advantage of short term spot market opportunities, whilst also relying on the establishment of longer term arrangements as a foundation for sustainable commerciality - huge consuming regions including Asia and Europe are extremely interested buyers and are actively talking with a number of suppliers and terminals.

The LNG Export Forum will focus on these issues and more and give delegates a unique insight into the huge commercial opportunities for North American LNG export. Forum highlights include:
