Call for Papers: OGEL Special Issue on "Changing LNG Markets and Contracts"
11 October 2019
Oil, Gas and Energy Law Intelligence (www.ogel.org, ISSN 1875-418X) invites submissions for a special issue addressing "Changing LNG Markets and Contracts."
The last OGEL Special Issue on "Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)" was published in 2017 and addressed a variety of legal and regulatory issues relating to LNG production and trading, highlighting the growing role of LNG in the global energy mix and the need for seizing the opportunity to create a more flexible and well-functioning global LNG market.
LNG continues its global expansion and 'transition from its traditional, more rigid structure to a fully traded commodity... with LNG supply expected to double between 2016 and 2020.' (David Ledesma, Introduction to LNG in Transition: From Uncertainty to Uncertainty, Oxford Energy Forum, September 2019).
At the time of rapid LNG volume growth, this special issue will look specifically at the most recent phenomena in LNG markets and the key changes to traditional LNG contract structures. We encourage submission of relevant papers, studies, and brief comments on various aspects of this subject. Topics of interest include:
- Commoditization of LNG
- New LNG projects and markets
- Novel LNG financing structures
- Financial LNG trading
- Portfolio LNG
- LNG transactions
- LNG Sale and Purchase Agreements (SPAs)
- The role of SPAs in the LNG industry
- Changing price formation in SPAs
- Changing non-price terms in SPAs
- Short-term and spot LNG deals
- LNG disputes
