    The lack of pipelines, or a slowdown in build-out of pipelines to China or South Korea, would eventually help companies operating LNG tankers. Many of the current vessels are on long term charters, so the effect on the few vessels negotiating spot rates should be minimal.

     

    I don't see Cheniere (LNG) being negatively impacted much by this. Due to transit times and shipping rates, it would make more financial sense for export cargoes to go to Europe or Latin America, instead of a long haul to Japan.
