According to the latest Reuters report, Asian LNG spot prices have continued to fall and have now reached a 19 month low.
LNG spot prices for the region with delivery dates in April are currently estimated at US$6.00 per million Btu. This price is 20 cents lower than previous weeks and currently the lowest level recorded since August 2017 when prices dropped as low as US$5.90 per million Btu.
