In a discussion ahead of the Asia LNG & Hydrogen Gas Markets Conference, S&P Global Commodity Insights' experts Surabhi Sahu, Kenneth Foo and Jeffrey Moore talk aboutAsia's LNG winter procurement, benchmark market activity and strategies like fuel switching to mitigate shortages.

INDIA ELECTION: Battling high prices, oil diplomacy and upstream revival priorities for new government

The spotlight on India's oil sector has never been stronger. India's role in global oil markets is set to expand at a fast pace until the end of the decade, making it the biggest center for demand growth, according to the IEA. Refining expansion remains a key priority, but with a tilt towards petrochemicals, and the country’s upstream strategy aims to realize the hydrocarbon potential of offshore regions. While rising Russian oil flows and its impact on purchases from the Middle East is dominating the discussion on trade flows, rising oil prices is throwing up new challenges for the economy. In a wide-ranging discussion with Sambit Mohanty, Asia Energy Editor, Atul Arya, Chief Energy Strategist at S&P Global Commodity Insights, and Dharmakirti Joshi, Chief India Economist at CRISIL -- a unit of S&P Global – share their views on the roadmap ahead for India's oil sector as the country is set to elect a new federal government.

How are gas operators navigating the difficult gas environment in 2024?

Pressured by sub-$2/MMBtu prices, many US producers have decided to cut spending on gas-directed drilling and completion activity and to scale back production in 2024. But there are signs of price improvement along the futures curve in late 2024 and thereafter, due in part to the arrival of new LNG facilities, giving operators reason for optimism. In this episode, Jeremy Beaman, natural gas news editor, talks with Bryan Mcnamara and Imre Kugler, directors of upstream research, about how natural gas producers are approaching a difficult price environment and what their plans are for 2024 and 2025.
