LNG portfolio value – Timera in print

23 Sep 2020

Strong LNG market growth (around 10% a year across 2016-19) is driving the rapid evolution of LNG portfolios.  Large producers such as Shell, BP and Total are expanding their value-chain presence. Trading focused intermediaries including Gunvor, Vitol and Trafigura are driving liquidity growth and evolution of the traded market. And major buyers like Japan’s Jera, South Korea’s Kogas and Singapore’s Pavilion are expanding their portfolio footprints and developing commercial capabilities or joint ventures to support this growth.

LNG portfolio value creation is underpinned by the ability to quantify incremental value from adding new assets, contracts and hedging strategies. A successful modelling framework can be the ‘engine room’ of portfolio value growth. Timera has published an article in Petroleum Economist in Sep 2020 that looks at LNG portfolio value creation and the development of an analytical capability to support it.

Timera’s ‘Flex to decarbonise’ briefing pack

2 Mar 2020

We set out analysis that shows a major capacity deficit opening up across European power market over the next 3 years. Despite increasingly rapid renewables build, parallel closures of nuclear and coal plants see the capacity deficit rise to at least 60GW by 2030.

Our modelling shows an investment requirement in 4 key types of flexibility.  We estimate investment of at least €25bn by 2025 and €55 bn by 2030 is needed to maintain security of supply.
