Webinar: Mitigating spot market risk for Latin America’s LNG buyers

Join ZE PowerGroup Inc. and ICIS for a joint webinar: Mitigating spot market risk for Latin America’s LNG buyers on May 12, 2021 at 7:00 am PDT.

In spite of the Covid-19 pandemic and the consequent slowdown in global economic activity, spot LNG prices have shown huge volatility through recent months, hitting record high levels in January 2021. This trend is occurring just as Latin American countries such as Argentina and Brazil increase their buying activity, based on the need to meet growing demand or cover declining domestic production. At the same time, newer buyers such as Colombia and Panama have emerged in the region over recent years, only to be exposed to rapidly changing pricing landscape.

With the global demand picture increasingly clouded by pandemic lockdowns and the uncertain timeframes for recovery, what can regional buyers do to prepare and protect themselves against this volatility?

In this webinar ICIS and ZE PowerGroup will focus in on the fundamentals that buyers in the region need to consider as part of their risk management strategies, as well as the data and pricing information that can help them mitigate pricing risk.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • A breakdown of the supply and demand fundamentals LATAM LNG buyers should be aware of
  • Demand outlook for regional buyers
  • The pricing data that will help them mitigate market price volatility
  • How are the clearest and most accurate insights achieved in a data-driven world
  • Live Q & A
