Recent trade and geopolitical developments, particularly the ongoing trade dispute between the United States and China, have impacts on the global LNG market. The main effect is long-term deals between business entities from the U.S. and China will not be signed until this dispute is settled. This pause impacts the entire LNG market, as others around the globe are being cautious with decisions while this dispute is ongoing, especially when coupled with other emerging factors including a soft spot market for LNG. It is our strong hope that China and the U.S. will strive for an agreement as businesses in both nations remain anxious to transact with each other. A resolution to the China-U.S. trade issue will also likely lead to increased urgency in other global LNG markets.
