The ARGUS Northeast Asia des (ANEA) price assessment
The ANEA price assessment is used as a reference for global spot LNG trading and represents regional LNG market activity. It is a series of northeast Asian LNG forward swaps assessments in the Argus LNG Daily report. ANEA physical spot price assessments represent cargoes delivered ex-ship (des) to ports in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, trading 6-12 weeks before the date of delivery.
Advantages of the ANEA price assessment
The ANEA forward swaps price assessments cover three forward-month periods from the furthest ANEA physical spot assessment. Argus’ new ANEA swaps coverage complements the Argus LNG Daily report’s existing suite of Asia-Pacific and European spot price assessments, market commentary and global netback pricing.
Users of the ANEA price assessment
The ANEA price assessment is used by trading firms and governments in northeast Asia. Users include Japanese, South Korean and Indian traders and importers, and the Australian government.
