A Hazardous Game – The Strait of Malacca

... risks from piracy, terrorism and alike. To offer some headline numbers it is interesting to highlight that 36.9% of all global ships are oil tankers, which is just in front of normal dry bulk carriers (36%). Insofar as Malacca, in 2006 a total of 22,995 oil tanker journeys were recorded via the strait, which is only second to 29,672 container vessels, as we know Asia is a leading producer of low-cost consumer goods. Also, in the last decade the world has recorded an upsurge of LNG tankers with Indonesia, Malaysia, Qatar and Australia shipping liquefied gas via Malacca to Japan and Korea. In all, most ship types are growing in demand with Khalid (2009) even underlining that by 2020 Malacca will see traffic of 100,000+ ships ...

... according to various estimates become a net exporter of gas by 2020. Major advantage of American LNG projects is the relatively low level of capital expenditures due to significant number of existing LNG import facilities that can be quickly converted for LNG exports (albeit LUKoil does not underline the huge cost). A lot will depend on the US political climate as its current weak economic footing gives a lot momentum for those that believe exporting gas will damage the domestic economy via high prices. Interestingly, USA’s ...



... Peninsula and even as far as India. Then it was mainly Gazprom’s modest LNG expertise that limited sizeable deliveries in the near future to the heavily LNG focused Asian states. But still, Gazprom made good progress by shifting 9% of Japanese LNG and 7% of its oil in 2011 to Asia. Vladivostok LNG terminal, due for launch in 2017, will increase capacity matching the rising demand, particularly as recent events have benefited Russia (e.g. Fukushima Disaster). However, the talk about North Korea becoming a "transit ...

... between its imports and exports. USA even had to convert its now useless LNG terminals (which it first built at a massive cost to assure gas supplies in early 2000’s) into shale gas export stations; albeit their potential is limited due to original LNG terminals being inflexible. Reason behind the original revolution was the high prices for oil and gas in 2007-2008, which is incredible as in a way the conventional energy lobby, somewhat, shot themselves in the foot. Currently, oil shale in its 2 years of mining is not as impressive as shale gas, but the latter had 5 years to get there. In ...
