Traditionally, LNG export plants have been owned and operated by the same companies that owned the gas resources.
But sometimes economic necessity pushes aside tradition.
U.S. LNG export projects plan to go with a different model, in which the plant owner is not necessarily a gas producer. Driving the change are companies seeking to turn their dormant LNG import terminals into busy export operations.
The new model is called “tolling.” The LNG plant owner collects the same toll regardless of how much the liquefaction services customer paid for the gas, how much it is worth to the customer on delivery overseas, and how much the customer makes or loses on each cargo.
