High fluctuations in LNG vessel rates: GAIL won't know how to cope
Jun 01: LNG vessels rates and how they behave are important for large importers like India.
8The rates have shown extreme volatility, when arbitrage opportunities opened up in Asia during the winter, pushing vessel rates up. But this window closed in February.

8Despite a recent spike in vessel orders for delivery in 2020-21, the market remains structurally short by approximately 25 vessels over the next 2-3 years.
8This adds another level of volatility to the LNG market.
