Trevor Sikorski discusses how China's tariffs on US LNG would alter supply to Asia

"Tariffs would make U.S. supplies uneconomical to China, so traders would shift cargoes around to send U.S. fuel to other buyers like Japan and South Korea while redirecting non-U.S. fuel to China, Trevor Sikorski, an analyst with Energy Aspects Ltd. in London, said by email. China would probably end up paying about 10 percent more for spot cargoes after the swaps, he said."
