Gas-buying clause abolished for three LNG power plants

LAHORE: Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited’s board of directors on Friday allowed a waiver of the minimum 66 per cent take-or-pay clause for three government-owned liquefied natural gas (LNG) power plants in Punjab in a bid to reduce the burden of capacity payments and increase the interest of both local and foreign investors in the government’s plan of privatising these projects. The board also approved a proposal in principle for setting up another LNG terminal by a private firm at Karachi port.

UK's new gas saviour during supply crunch is Qatar

After gas shortages in the UK have led to soaring high prices, Qatar eyes an opportunity to strengthen ties with the UK in terms of gas supply. It is clear that Qatar sees Brexit as a chance to develop huge gas investments in the UK. The Gulf state already has $50 billion of investments in Britain and delivers 90 per cent of Britain's imports of liquefied natural gas, according to Qatar's Ministry of Energy. According to a report published by Financial Times, last month, Downing Street initiated LNG diplomacy talks with their Qatari counterparts on diverting four energy tankers to Britain.

Gas price surge, just one more headwind for world economy

Soaring gas prices that threaten to push up winter fuel bills, hurt consumption and exacerbate a near-term spike in inflation are another blow to a world economy just getting back on its feet after the coronavirus shock. The gas market chaos, which has driven prices 280% higher in Europe this year and led to a 100%-plus surge in the United States, is being blamed on a range of factors from low storage levels to carbon prices to reduced Russian supplies.

Saving every drop: LNG tankers turn to burning oil as gas prices soar

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) tankers are burning dirtier fuel oil than normal to try to conserve as much of their LNG cargo as possible after the price of the super-chilled fuel soared above oil, trade and shipping sources have told Reuters. LNG tankers often use some of their natural gas cargo – stored in liquid form at minus 163 degrees Celsius – to help power the ship, as a small portion of the LNG tends to evaporate or “boil off” during transit and needs to be removed from the tanks anyway to avoid the build up of pressure. When gas prices were lower, they chose to “boil off” more of these cargoes over using fuel oil to power the ships. But the current price of LNG is so high that ship operators are trying to avoid using more than necessary of the stored gas for fuel, and are instead relying on cheaper fuel oil, shipping sources said.

Qatar faces tough choices as coronavirus guts natural gas demand

Struck by weak demand and depleting storage facilities, the world’s biggest exporter of LNG may soon have to: curb output or ignite a battle for market share that has the potential. Qatar began redirecting LNG cargoes away from Asia in February, where the coronavirus was shattering sales, and sending them to Europe. That quick fix didn’t last, as the pandemic left Qatar struggling for places to park unsold cargoes.
