U.S. LNG producers fear more price drops as they await China buys under Phase 1 deal

China has two ways to do this. Buy a huge lot of LNG on the spot market. That’s not going to help US terminal developers who need long-term agreements in order to pull towards FID. Or they take those longterm contracts but then what’s the price. Thee is the market price, there is the price China wants to pay and there is the price the terminal developer needs I order to cover his costs. Those 3 are very hard to join – some say impossible. I am curious how this is going to petter out. Popcorn is ready.
