The Asian spot price of LNG has fallen to a three-year low of around $US4.50 per million British thermal units, which equates to about $6.30 per gigajoule. In contrast, the spot price in Sydney is trading at around $11.25/GJ. Some gas buyers have urged the federal government to intervene by imposing restrictions on Queensland’s LNG exporters, but Resources Minister Matthew Canavan says the best way to put downward pressure on domestic prices is to find new sources of supply.
