Trading of LNG derivatives to benefit industry By Stephen Stapczynski and Dan Murtaugh on 1/21/2019 SINGAPORE (Bloomberg) -- With natural gas demand growing faster than for any other fossil fuel, LNG futures may be finally taking off. Derivatives represented about 2% of global LNG production at the beginning of 2017 as an array of contracts around the world struggled to gain traction. But by the end of last year, volumes had grown to almost 23%, led by a burgeoning Intercontinental Exchange contract based on S&P Global Platts’ Japan-Korea Marker spot price assessments. While volumes are a long way off established global energy benchmarks such as Brent crude -- where trade dwarfs worldwide oil production many times over -- the accelerating growth in LNG derivatives illustrates how the market is maturing. An explosion in supply, from the U.S. to Australia, is bringing more market participants and a shift away from traditional pricing. “There’s more short-term physical trading indexed to JKM and new counterparties active in the market,” said Tobias Davis, head of LNG–Asia at brokerage Tullett Prebon. “This creates more liquidity and in turn, builds more confidence in trading the swap and using it as a viable hedging tool.” There are now at least six derivative contracts for LNG, ranging from U.S. Gulf Coast futures on ICE to Dubai-Kuwait-India on Singapore Exchange. The most established by far is ICE’s Japan-Korea Marker, launched in 2012. More than 17,000 contracts traded in December, a 10-fold increase from January 2017. The next most active is CME Group’s futures contract, also based on S&P Global Platts’ JKM assessment. Its monthly volume peaked in November last year at 3,335 contracts. The need for a liquid LNG benchmark has been the subject of much debate. Traditionally, when oil was used more commonly in power generation and production, it was almost exclusively valued relative to crude oil and brought and sold under long-term contracts. One advantage of that system is that oil has a liquid and established futures market that gives market participants visibility and the confidence to hedge. But oil and gas don’t move in lockstep and buyers have become increasingly reluctant to be tied to crude markets. The expansion in global supply, most notably with the development of shale reserves that transformed the U.S. into a major natural gas exporter, has opened up other options and stimulated a shift to more spot trading. About 27% of LNG was sold under spot- or short-term deals in 2017, up from 12% in 2003, according to the International Group of LNG Importers. That just increased the need for a reliable price benchmark and liquid futures market for hedging. Regional gas benchmarks such as Louisiana’s Henry Hub, the U.K.’s National Balancing Point or Dutch Title Transfer Facility reflect local fundamentals and therefore may not be ideal proxies for the global LNG trade, where the vast majority of sales are in Asia. So that’s where LNG futures come in. JKM “is much more trusted, much more accurate, and the paper market is helping make it be more responsive to price movements,” Gordon D Waters, the global head of LNG at ENGIE, said by phone on Friday. JKM contracts could reach the level of NBP or TTF “most likely within the next 5 years.” NBP and TTF volumes both averaged about 37,000 contracts a day in 2018. There’s still a long way to go. ICE JKM is still much smaller than other global oil and gas benchmarks. Exchange open interest, or the amount of outstanding bets at the end of every day, accounted for about $2 billion at the end of 2018, compared with $36 billion for U.S. natural gas and more than $100 billion for Brent oil, according to Bloomberg estimates. How the debate over natural gas pricing is playing out in Europe For a futures market to be considered truly liquid, volumes should be about 10 times the size of the actual physical trade, according to Total SA, one of the world’s biggest producers and a major participant in the JKM market. With volumes multiplying by about three times a year, JKM should reach that level in about five years, Philip Olivier, Total’s general manager of global LNG, said in October. European and U.S. players, international oil companies, banks, trading companies and some Australian producers make up the bulk of JKM’s contract liquidity, according to ENGIE’s Waters. “The big gap is the end buyer hedging activity, including the Japanese end users. They are not yet active,” he said. Brent and U.S. gas traders also have much more flexibility, as they’re able to buy and sell futures by the second, with prices updating to reflect the fast-moving market. Most JKM LNG trades are still brokered offline and then cleared by exchanges. Contract values are based on a monthly average of Platts assessments, so the price updates once a day when the new assessment is added. Still, LNG has already surpassed one energy derivative. ICE’s JKM contract now has more value in open interest than the exchange’s Newcastle coal contract. The two fuels, of course, also vie in the real world for space in power plants in some regions. “If you have a look at how the coal market developed in the mid-2000s, it took over a decade to transition to a liquid exchange order book,” said Gordon Bennett, managing director for utility markets at ICE. “It definitely feels like JKM is evolving quicker."

Old news, but might be of interest to some Https://marketrealist.com/2018/12/shell-stock-has-fallen-the-least-in-the-past-month How Total Stock Has Performed in the Past Month By Michelle ReyDec 27, 2018 | 4:25 PM Total’s stock returns Total (TOT) stock has fallen more than Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) in the past month, falling 7.0% since November 23. Meanwhile, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) has fallen 11.0%, and BP (BP) has fallen 8.1%. Total Total’s moving averages On November 23, Total’s ten-day moving average was 3.5% below its 30-day moving average. However, that gap has been reduced to 3.0% due to Total’s 30-day moving average falling steeply. How is Total stock positioned after its recent plunge? Total’s dividend yield is 5.9%, above peers’ average of 5.5%. Total, which focuses on enhancing shareholders’ returns via dividends and buybacks, is buying back shares to offset dilution caused by its scrip dividend. It plans to buy back up to $5 billion in stock between 2018 and 2020 to share the benefits of its improved earnings with shareholders. Total’s forward PE multiple is 8.9x, below the peer average of 10.4x, likely due to its lower anticipated growth. Total’s earnings are expected to grow 31% this year, whereas peers’ are expected to grow 61% on average. Overall, Total’s dividend yield is higher than peers’ and its valuation and 2018 growth expectation are lower.

A group of nearly 30 companies involved in the production of plastics and consumer goods said Wednesday that they have committed $1 billion to help reduce plastic waste as part of a global alliance. The Alliance to End Plastic Waste, which includes oil-and-gas majors such as Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) and Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDSB.LN) and chemical makers like BASF SE (BAS.XE), hopes to invest $1.5 billion over the next five years, according to fellow member Total SA (FP.FR). Among other projects, the group plans to partner with cities to design waste-management systems, especially along rivers which transport waste to the ocean. Member companies will also fund the development of technologies that prevent plastic waste by investing in startups, with an initial focus on Southeast Asia.

Chevron, Total, Reliance join blockchain investor group Author Henry Edwardes Evans Editor Wendy Wells Commodity Oil London — Chevron, Total and Reliance Industries have become strategic investors in the Vakt blockchain platform, Vakt said Wednesday. Not registered? Receive daily email alerts, subscriber notes & personalize your experience. Register Now The digital platform, which handles post-trade processing in the North Sea crude oil market, counts BP, Equinor and Shell among existing shareholders. "With Chevron, Reliance and Total on board, we now have five of the world's top ten largest oil and gas companies by market capitalization" as investors, Vakt director Adam Vile said in a statement. BP, Equinor, Shell, Gunvor and Mercuria are already using the platform, launched in late November, and are all strategic investors. Vakt aims to extend it to US crude oil pipelines and Northwest Europe refined product barges later this year. Ultimately the platform could support all physically traded energy markets, it has said. The platform manages physical energy transactions from trade entry to final settlement, eliminating reconciliation and paper-based processes. It does not involve the trade itself. A first public launch to non-consortium licensees is expected soon, the company said. Licensees can expect efficiency cost savings of around 40% in post-trade resolution, Vakt's vice-president of business development, Lyon Hardgrave, told S&P Global Platts in November. Other investors in the company include ANB Amro and Societe Generale. -- Henry Edwardes-Evans, henry.edwardes-evans@spglobal.com -- Edited by Wendy Wells, newsdesk@spglobal.com
