Reuters is reporting that Asian spot LNG prices have suffered a further decline from multi-year seasonal highs.
Spot prices for November deliveries have fallen as low as US$11.10 per million Btu. Similarly cargoes for delivery in late October are hovering around US$10.70 to US$11.00 per million Btu.
The cause of this trend has been sighted as being due to ‘lacklustre demand from well-stocked Asian utilities and healthy supply’.
