SGX LNG Index Group

Background

The Asia Pacific region accounts for approximately three quarters of global LNG demand. Furthermore, almost 40% of global LNG imports were sourced from within the Asia Pacific region in 2014, a proportion which appears likely to grow in the years ahead as new Australian supply capacity comes onstream.

Moving forward, rising spot transactions will serve to boost credibility of a market representative LNG spot price, while the corresponding rise of a benchmark Asian spot index would also provide assurance of appropriate, fair and transparent market based price formation for longer-term supply contracts without jeopardising supply security.

 

 

Sling – Pricing Asia's LNG

Jointly developed by Singapore Exchange (SGX) and Energy Market Company (EMC), the SGX LNG Index Group – or Sling – was born out of a market need for a trusted Asian LNG spot index at selected locations. The Sling methodology and locations are tailored to meet the industry's needs for a responsive and transparent price point, as LNG spot trading volume increases. The Sling comprises the following indices:

  • Singapore Sling
  • North Asia Sling
  • Dubai/Kuwait/India (DKI) Sling
