Ukraine crisis may boost LNG prices if gas supply threatened, analysts say

  • A disruption of natural gas supplies to Europe by an escalation of Russia’s military action in Ukraine may boost LNG demand and prices in Asia and South America, analysts say.
  • Russia, which provides Europe with a quarter of its natural gas mainly though Ukraine, has cut supplies twice since 2006; while the current crisis hasn’t interrupted exports, LNG prices will “move through the roof” if flows transiting Ukraine are stopped, Societe Generale says.
  • Any potential supply curbs could cause traders to stop selling LNG cargoes out of storage and instead hold them for domestic use, triggering competition for the fuel in South America and Asia.
