SESSION 6 – From Source to Supply: Changes in Feed Gas Sourcing Strategies in the Americas

 Understanding business models and synergies between gas producers and LNG developers
-Is there a need for gas producers to invest in LNG infrastructure to reach new markets?
-LNG developers investing in upstream
-How can North American gas producers’ position on sales indexes affect LNG export project development?
-Synergies between producer, buyers and investors

 Will North American LNG projects abandon HH pricing index and start offering end-market pricing indexation?

 Will US based feed gas suppliers agree to sell domestic production for liquefaction and onward delivery into Europe on an NBP or TTF index?

 Can North American LNG producers secure construction debt financing in a scenario where there is a mismatch between the feed gas supply index and the LNG sales price index?
 Feed gas sales: Cost of production plus fixed margin vs fixed cost basis for any term
 Could Mexico become a significant global LNG exporter based on its own shale ambitions and US feed gas?
 How realistic is it for Argentina to develop shale gas pre-2025, and what impacts will it have on its supply-demand strategy?
