LNG Market Snapshot

There has been no new addition to the global LNGC fleet, which consists of 366 vessels in total. The order book, however, expanded by 3 vessels to 110 units. Atlantic and Pacific LNG demand softened m-o-m, resulting in LNG prices down into the US$17-19/mmBtu range for early April deliveries and down to US$15/mmBtu for May. The LNG supply outlook remains tight until at least 4Q 2014. Spot charter rates also softened m-o-m as limited spot cargo availability reduced activity and the situation is likely to endure in 2014.

Oil Market Snapshot

The average Brent oil price was stable at around $108/bbl in March. Developments in Crimea only had a minor impact on oil prices (short-lived $2-3/bbl spike). World oil supply jumped by 600,000 b/d in February, mostly from Iraq. Despite signs of a slowing Chinese economy, the world economy is projected to grow by 3.7% in 2014 (IMF).

CAPEX cuts across the oil industry are likely to limit majors’ production growth in 2-3 years from now.

Eagle Ford’s December 2013 production was up 31.4% y-o-y but down 3.2% m-o-m. The resource play’s rig count was also down compared to January 2014.
