High spot prices have dried up LNG supplies to India.
8A comparison of our daily data from two months ago with that of the import sheet as of yesterday will show that LNG imports have gone down dramatically.
8Exactly two months ago, on November 20, 2020, LNG imports that we had documented come to 2411832 cubic metres
8As on January 19, 2021, the total volume that we could document was just 1689523 cubic metres
8As on 21 November, 2020, there were 595095 cubic metres of gas meant to come in at Hazira while Dahej was meant to process 1527237 cubic metres of gas
8As of yesterday, 290000 cubic metres is documented to come in at Hazira and 953793 cubic metres at Dahej
8Also, the Hazira data as of yesterday is misleading, as these shipments are meant to come in only in February now, as for this entire month, there are no shipments coming in at Hazira. Two major clients, ArcelorMittal and RIL are both not bringing any cargoes. RIL is using its ethane cargoes and liquid fuels while AcerlorMittal is being supplied gas from RIL's new gas from the KG Basin.
8But clearly, the point to note is that India Inc is adjusting to low LNG supply by going through the time tested way of switching to alternate fuels, like naptha or fuel oil or syn gas.
8India's gas demand can see big increases only if the price is low, in the range of $6-7/mmbtu whereas the price appetite is much higher in countries such as China or in Korea or Japan.  India's demand for gas is highly price elastic.
8The projection is that these high, winter demand-driven prices are going to settle down, and hopefully the termianls will start importing normal volumes of LNG
8But the lesson for Indian businesses is that you cannot depend on gas entirely, and that you need to have dual feed systems, so that when push comes to shove, you can move easily to alternate fuels.

In an informal briefing, GAIL has claimed that high LNG prices are a result of mostly paper transactions between a few big LNG traders.
8GAIL also said that it is willing to sell LNG at a far lower price than the benchmark JKM spot prices.
8This assertion by Indian largest gas trader seems to cast doubt on the viability of JKM as a benchmark for gas prices for India.

8There is is an update on the IOCL-CPCL Nagapatinam project. Details
India's dependence on LNG demand is high now

8Refineries is as high as 88%
8Petrochemicals is a whopping 95%

While high spot LNG prices have dried up LNG cargoes into India, these prices are unlikely to last beyond a point.
8Also, Indian companies have learned a lesson: that while spot LNG can be a viable way of plugging a gap in supply, sticking to long term contracts, whether Henry Hub based or Brent-based is the best way out.
8Sticking to good old GAIL will make more sense than to go with newer players. The fertilizer industry, for example, will always pitch for GAIL even if a competitor is providing gas at a lower rate. "Whenever there is an unscheduled shutdown, we have found GAIL adjusting the volumes elsewhere instead of imposing take-or-pay penalties. This is something a new supplier cannot afford to provide," a source in Iffco, the country's largest fertilizer company told this website. "Look at the situation now, GAIL continues to provide gas while others have run for cover," he added.
8As for the power sector, even in normal times, the survival of gas-based power plants was a problem, but with LNG prices sky-high, even those with captive distribution systems such as Torrent are balking at buying gas. In the merit order system, it is near-impossible to find any demand for gas-based power.
8What should be the proportion of spot vs. term? Well, that depends on the risk-taking capacity of the buyer. But the lesson here is not to be swayed by low spot LNG prices to take long term decisions. Just a few months ago, when spot prices were really low, many buyers of US HH-based term gas, were trying to re-read their GSAs to find loopholes to get out of them. They should be thankful now that they have these deals in place.

The latest data sheet we have is as of end of last week and that data shows Shell's Hazira terminal, otherwise busy around this time of the year, as hshowing no processing of any cargo.
8It is indeed a sad testimony to the multinational driven private sector business model  for LNG in India. With volumes from entities, like RIL drying up because of high prices, the terminal is left with no cargoes to handle.
8The public sector bears the load. "We have not missed out on a single cargo meant for our customers in India," a GAIL official told this website.

Several segments of subsea pipelines are also expected to be included in the project, with one source indicating that up to 150 kilometres of offshore lines could be involved. In the meanwhile, the existing Daman development involves the exploitation of the B-12 and C-24 marginal gas fields, off the country’s west coast. Details

The global gas market is in a complete tizzy
8A January 2021 cargo was sold by Exxon at ~$35/MMBtu or >$200 boe. This is an unheard-of rate
8Then again, on January 11, 2021, an al time high JKM price of $28.2/MMBtu was established.
8Japanese power prices are at $400/MMbtu, a scale never seen before.
8The arbitrage opportunities between Henry Hub and Asian prices is incredibly massive, and GAIL can make the biggest killing ever, except for the fact that most of its US cargoes are already fully tied up
8The US cargo value is a mere $10.8 million and by the time it reaches Asia the value goes up to a massive $112.8 million.
8A cargo can yield an arbitrage of an incredible $100 million. 10 cargoes and you make a billion dollars. This is unbelievable economics.
8PLL can very well take its oil price linked cargoes out of RasGas and sell it at JKM rate and make a whole lot more money than it can by processing that cargo through its Dahej terminal. This looks like a once in a lifetime opportunity.
8LNG cargo rates have hit the ceiling too. With that kind of arbitrage available, the spot cargo rate is close to 0.5 million a day.
8European storage levels have plummeted given the huge arbitrage available between European and Asian prices.

The line-up of LNG vessels coming into India suddenly looks far shorter than before.
8Why is that so?
8It is quite possible that spot cargoes have completely dried up, now that spot rates are at $20/mmbtu.
8And only term cargoes, at crude linked or Henry Hub linked pricing, are coming in.
8According to studies made, Indian appetite for absorbing incremental gas at large enough volumes is at a price range of around $6-7/mmbtu, beyond that point, its appetite wanes.
8At $20/mmbtu JKM price, there will be zero buyers for gas.

RIL currently has around 1.64 lakh tonnes of chemical imports lined up
8It is not known whether RIL procures LNG on a term basis, for it doesn't and if it depends on spot prices, its ethane shipments from the US will become really handy at this juncture. Two shipments are landing up ahead.
8Then again, now that the affiliate restriction on the buying of gas has been lifted, RIL, which in any case is the largest gas buyer in India, can end up also being the biggest buyer of gas from its KG Basin discoveries. Around 7 mmscmd of gas is being auctioned out in February by the RIL-BP duo.
And these imports come in at Dahej and Sikka and they consist of
8Ethane
8Benzene
