The global oversupply of LNG has prompted India-based Petronet to renegotiate its 20-year Gorgon LNG supply contract with ExxonMobil. Petronet is believed to have secured a deal to reduce the price it pays by $US1.10 to $US1.30 per unit. Industry analysts say other Gorgon buyers may also seek to renegotiate their supply contracts, as part of a global trend for LNG buyers to do so. Saul Kavonic of Wood Mackenzie analyst says the biggest risk for Australian LNG producers will be if major Asian buyers such as Japan and China seek to renegotiate supply contracts.
