From early 2019 spot LNG prices began to fall sharply, from over $10 in January to less than $5 by May.
8The fall in spot prices is driven by an over supplied market but the point to note is that there is considerable divergence between spot LNG prices and long term contract prices which are usually based on crude prices. So much so, that the differential is more than 100%, as crude prices continue to stay high
8Forward curves show that long term contract prices may stay higher for the rest of 2019 and 2020 while forward spot prices for this period  will be much lower
8There is a fundamental decoupling of LNG prices from crude prices taking place in the market today
8And even if the demand-supply balance is restored in the future, it will not be the same again.

India's interest in LNG trucking is rising. Truck loading facilities are now standard features in any regasification plant
8Standard lithium-ion battery technology is likely to penetrate the passenger car, light commercial vehicle, city bus and municipal vehicle markets, but it has made no inroad into the higher energy consuming heavy-duty vehicle market.
8Lithium-ion heavy trucks, despite much fanfare, remain largely at a conceptual stage as developers grapple with the weight, power and range requirements.
8The point to note however is that LNG as a fuel for heavy vehicles are expected to have a golden run only until 2030 only and not after that.
8Any investment payback analysis must take this crucial timeline into consideration while working out the maths.

The Mozambique government has drastically reduced the number of LNG trains which are going to begin production over the 2023-30 period.
8While the number of trains has gone down, the cost of each train has gone up.
8A lower number of trains entails a lower contribution to GDP, fiscal revenue, exports, FDI, and private external financing.
8Higher development costs imply a higher debt that needs to be incurred, including by the national oil company to finance its equity participation share in the LNG mega projects.
8Will these findings have implications for the Indian trio of ONGC, BPCL and OIL who are heavily invested in at least two LNG trains as of the moment in Mozambique?

The long term projections is that gas will no longer be used in vehicle mobility.
8For several reasons, CNG will not remain a viable fuel in Indian cities, even in the medium term perspective.
8Globally, as also in India, there is an increasing belief that LNG based trucks has a long term future. This is because LNG storage space can be up to 600 times less than CNG
8In the Indian market, the captive point to point segment can roll out quickly.  Trucks plying in container terminals, LPG/MS/HSD transportation trucks, automobile carriers, milk carriers, mining trucks and city/STC buses have been identified as possible segments which can be targeted initially.
8An estimate has shown that the the overall cost at the retail outlets level is expected to beRs 170-180/mmbtu. In the current pricing scenario, LNG pump price of about Rs 1050/MMBtu, which is about a viable Rs 54/kg.

8Who are the key contacts to get in touch with to find out more, be it an owner or a PMC or an EPC contractor
8Since all this information is categorized into the software in an orderly manner, it is possible to query the database in all possible ways, from finding out full details on the projects in which a demand for the piece of equipment you are interested in selling is going to come up, to getting a list of validated contacts to call up in a project, to knowing when a particular project will need raw materials to consume.

When a consortium puts in a bid for a complex tender, there has to be a good understanding among its members on how to keep rates competitive.
8Here is one instance, where in a recently awarded Rs 700 crore offshore contract, the equipment supplier quoted relatively lower rates but the other member of the consortium, which was meant to provide service personnel, ended up quoting what turned out to be a ridiculously high rate.
