USE CASE — WINTER 2020-2021
During the 2020-2021 winter, LNG prices reached record high levels above 30 $/mmbtu in Asia. A wave of unplanned outages at LNG plants across the world, beginning in the US followed by Algeria, Malaysia, and Qatar, marked the start of a perfect storm for the supercooled gas, which was later fueled by cold weather and strong demand across Asia, LNG prices first rallied at the end of October, and then again early in December as issues piled up on the supply side of the LNG market.
These outages were detected by Kayrros across all facilities and ahead of other market sources to enable subscribers to be on the right side of the rally.
