In spite of the resurging COVID-19 global cases at unprecedented levels, LNG was among the top performers in Q3.
Having surged so high of late, energy analysts envisage LNG’s prices to hold at around $5/MMBTu (a standard gas measurement) through the end of 2020.
That said, investors are also very hopeful of strong LNG demand in Q4 as emerged markets, especially in the Nothern hemisphere, head for winter. This means more liquified natural gas would be required to warm its citizens, thereby further increasing demand among the spectrum.
What you should know
- LNG is a type of gas that has been transformed into a liquid form to make it easier and safer for transportation.

The common ways to invest in commodities are:
- Using commodity futures: These are agreements to sell or buy a given amount of commodity at a particular price and specified date in the future. They can be traded online through a broker that connects to commodity exchange.
- Using CFDs: A contract for difference (CFD) is a derivative asset, where there is an agreement (usually between a broker and a commodity trader) to pay the differential in the commodity price of an underlying asset between the beginning and end of that contract.
- Using the physical method: The most popular way of commodity investing in Nigeria would be purchasing the commodity itself. Commodities such as cocoa and gold can easily be traded physically.
