“LNG prices in Japan, Australia’s biggest market for gas exports closely track the Japanese crude import price with a lag of four to seven months…. The worst of the hit to LNG prices has yet to flow through…Westpac calculates…that LNG prices in Japan should be less than $US 9 per million British thermal units in May of this year, close to levels last seen in mid-2010 and down about 50 per cent from the highs of mid- 2012”
