LNG Buyers Seen Rejecting Fewer U.S. Cargoes as Prices Rise

Buyers of U.S. liquefied natural gas will probably cancel fewer shipments scheduled for August than they do for July as prices show signs of recovery, according to traders. Cheniere Energy Inc., the nation’s biggest producer of LNG, received requests from buyers to forgo 16-23 cargoes for August, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. Traders surveyed by Bloomberg News speculated that cancellations from all U.S. terminals could total between 25-45 cargoes for August. The final figure is likely to be fewer than those for July, when 35-45 loadings are expected to be canceled, they said. The potential drop in canceled cargoes may signal that the global LNG market is starting to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, which has hammered demand in an already oversupplied space. While the market is still struggling with a glut, price differences between the main U.S., Europe and Asia trading regions have started to recover ahead of next winter.
