Rising European gas increases the pull of US cargoes away from Asia

Rising European gas increases the pull of US cargoes away from Asia

The difference of 17 cargoes is the widest so far this winter, which has been marked by volatile gas prices in Europe, where storage inventories are low and major supplier Russia has not delivered as promised.

Higher natural gas costs and lower delivering rates are expanding the draw of U.S. liquefied natural gas cargoes to Europe over more conventional winter markets in Asia.  As of Thursday evening, there were 41 U.S. LNG cargoes with either announced destinations in Europe or on a possible way to the natural gas starved continent, contrasted with 24 heading with Asia, ship-tracking data accumulated by Bloomberg show. Last month, benchmark European gas futures were just about as much as $24 per million British warm units higher than those in Asia.

The gap has since narrowed significantly, but volatile winter spot prices and shipping rates have tipped to the point in favor of Europe, said David Seduski, an LNG industry analyst with the New York office of Energy Aspects. The firm forecasts that Asia will not begin to draw more U.S. LNG cargoes from Europe until the second quarter of 2022.

“LNG imports have been the saving grace for European supply in the short-term,” Seduski said.

U.S. LNG cargoes to Asia can take more than a month compared to the two-week voyage for most destinations in Europe, shipping data compiled by Bloomberg show. Those shorter distances also result in increased tanker availability.

Spot LNG carrier rates west of the Suez Canal of $42,000 a day are 79% lower than the December peak of $200,000 and 75% lower than a year ago, according to shipping data firm Fearnleys.
