Mr. Theal is a Chartered Financial Analyst. He is a member of the Executive Committee if the Calgary Branch of the RMC Club of Canada.  As Tristone Capital’s Chris Theal points out, the only way the so-called [Liquefied Natural Gas] LNG [natural gas (primarily methane, CH4) that has been converted to liquid form for ease of storage or transport] trains are built is if they are tied to 20-year contracts; without those long-term contracts, the financing doesn’t happen. “There is a structural aspect to LNG markets that doesn’t exist with crude oil, which trades on the spot or forward-month basis. LNG, on the other hand, is underpinned by 20-year pricing agreements,” said Theal, Tristone’s managing director of research. “The long-term nature of LNG limits the ability of a natural gas consortium to act like the OPEC oil cartel,” said Theal.
