Liquefied Natural Gas
LNG is a fast-growing global commodity; total exports have increased by over 25% in the last 4 years and over 50% of worldwide natural gas is now traded as LNG. In an environment where LNG supply seeks to keep pace with the ever-growing demand from Asia and Europe, prices can be subject to significant short-term price movements. This volatility creates the need to manage price risk, making LNG futures an essential tool for any organisation with exposure to global gas prices.
