LNG is increasingly becoming a focus for Mercuria. We will endeavor to establish supply partnerships and global logistics through which we hope to support partners with LNG.
Mercuria’s experience of trading all the major energy products and our understanding of the dynamics within and across the energy markets establishes us with powerful insights as to the ebb and flow of LNG demand.
For many years Mercuria has been significantly involved in trading the downstream natural gas and power markets, which are the ultimate drivers for LNG demand. Traditionally, the LNG business has been typified by large scale point-to-point transactions. However, many customers are recognizing the flexibility of LNG as a traded commodity and placing greater reliance on the spot market. Mercuria is ideally positioned to support both ends of the equation.
With our acknowledged trading expertise we provide wholesale market access to upstream producers and project developers as well as supplying downstream customers such as utilities, industrial concerns, governments and financial investors. We employ a range of sophisticated tools including spot, forward, swaps and spreads and can tailor structured transactions to incorporate features such as cross-commodity hedging and embedded optionality to better manage market risk.
