AWR Lloyd worked for an emerging Asian nation’s state-owned oil and gas group to help them understand the economics and dynamics of the LNG industry as part of a feasibility study for the country’s first LNG terminal.

The scope of work includes reviewing the international LNG market (natural gas supply, demand, pricing, market trend, liquefaction capacity, cost estimation) and the country’s gas market (national LNG demand and supply, industry structure and regulations). The work also includes building a financial model to analyze the need for LNG terminals in the short and long run. This involves developing assumptions for short term industrial gas demand, terminal storage demand in the long run, capex, utilization and turnover, throughput capacity and turnover.
