Capacity constraints at Europe’s import terminals contrast with a flutter of LNG cargoes headed across the Atlantic. Some cargoes were offered at discounts of more than 20 percent to Europe’s benchmark TTF gas prices as sellers scramble to secure regas slots, but much volume had to be diverted to Asia.
