Webinar Outline

LNG supply and terminals are of growing importance in ERRA framework for the ‘old’, the new as well as potential Members of the Association. Regulatory considerations for the topic are particularly relevant these days because of two reasons:

  1. for EU ERRA Members the opening discussion on the revised gas directive that will include provisions concerning LNG will certainly impact the way they regulate LNG supply;
  2. on the other hand some of the non-EU ERRA Members have a strong interest in developing gas (and LNG) markets and are seeking easily accessible benchmarks and facilitation of knowledge exchange in this regard.

What’s more, LNG-related topics are of utmost importance in the Southeast Asian region, which is of growing significance for ERRA.

The Webinar will approach the topic from regulatory perspectives of LNG infrastructure access and tariffs. In order to look into the practical dimension of LNG supply, the webinar will also explore case study examples from specific LNG facilities presented by representatives of the terminals and/or regulators.

The case studies will present the principles that define the operation of the terminals according to the below listed scheme:

  1. Access rules: primary and secondary capacity allocation, use-it-or-lose-it provisions
  2. Tariffs: negotiated vs regulated, pros and cons
  3. Transparency rules and regulatory monitoring
  4. New service development such as storage, small scale LNG, or any other secondary service
  5. Integration with gas transmission network in domestic and international contexts
