World LNG market: Russia, its main competitors

World LNG market: Russia, its main competitors

There is a widespread opinion that the gas market is going through irreversible changes. LNG is said to become the main driver of changes; it will tie regional markets of America, Europe and Asia with each other. At present, however, piped gas imports are twice as large as LNG imports. Yet, it would be unwise to deny that LNG is one of the most dynamic segments of the gas market.

The report elaborates on the following issues:

  • The potential of Russia’s major LNG projects. The estimated potential of Yamal LNG, Arctic LNG-2, train 3 of Sakhalin LNG, and Baltic LNG.
  • Chances of second-tier projects. The Pechora LNG, Far Eastern LNG, Vladivostok LNG, and Shtokman projects were declared and promoted actively. Some of them are still alive formally, and others may be revived. What are the conditions for the dream to come true?
  • Russia’s competitors in the Middle East. The potential of Iran and Saudi Arabia. What can be expected from Qatar following lifting of its moratorium on construction of new LNG plants? The conflict between Qatar and Saudi Arabia; political risks of LNG production in the Middle East.
  • Australian LNG supplies. Current buyers and the portfolio of long-term contracts. Production growth potential.
  • American LNG supplies. Prospects of increase in LNG supplies from North America; long-term contracts and main markets.
  • Forecast of developments. How much LNG will Russia produce? Will we withstand competition against the USA, Australia, Qatar, and other producers? Forecasts of the LNG market development until 2040.

Fiscal Policy on Oil and Gas Sector: Revised as Often as Wikipedia
The tax system in the oil and gas sector continues to undergo radical changes. The beginning of 2019 saw the introduction of a new tax regime: additional income tax. That experiment was supposed to start migration of the oil industry to an innovative principle of taxation: on profit, not revenue. It seemed that a new main road was found. In the same year, however, the Finance Ministry launched an overt offensive against AIT. The fear of loss of government revenue now is more powerful than the threat of causing oil production to collapse in the medium term because of a tax system that does not stimulate investment. The Finance Ministry would strongly prefer to speed up the tax manoeuvre completion that earns the state budget additional money. Oil and gas companies respond to this with individual lobbying, attempting to wangle special treatment for their projects.
Ukrainian Gas Hub: Climax at Hand
The “zero hour” comes in less than a month: the contracts for gas transit through Ukraine and for supplying Russian gas to the country terminate at 10 am on 1 January. Meanwhile, Gazprom and Naftogaz are very far from looking for a mutually acceptable solution. The entire European gas business is watching intently the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine. Everyone is waiting for a new “gas war”: the January 2009 events proved to be a serious test both to European consumers and to Gazprom as a supplier. Is there still a chance of agreement? If there is not, will Gazprom cope with its obligations to deliver gas to Europe? Is Russia bluffing as it assures that the new infrastructure and gas in underground storage facilities will enable it to get by without Ukrainian transit even as soon as this winter? What will happen to Ukraine itself at the beginning of 2020?
