Exxon's New Guinea LNG Plant: 4 August Cargoes

June 18, 2014

ExxonMobil's Papua New Guinea liquefied natural gas (LNG) export plant is offering to sell four cargoes loading in August to long-term buyers as well as Asian end-users, two traders said.

The rapid export rate from the new plant, which was completed ahead of schedule, has helped push global LNG prices lower as major Japanese buyers retreat from spot markets.

The plant's main long-term buyers are Japan's Tokyo Electric Power, Osaka Gas (OSGSF) and Taiwan's CPC, but low demand across Asia may have led Exxon to broaden its offers.
