As Russia’s Gazprom declares force majeure for its LNG cargo, GAIL drops.
The morning of August 2 saw pressure on GAIL India’s stock as news sources said that Russia’s Gazprom had declared force majeure on its long-term LNG contracts with the firm.
The force majeure clause was triggered after Gazprom failed to deliver several LNG cargoes to GAIL from Singapore as scheduled, instead choosing to transfer those cargoes to Europe, where the Russian corporation could sell its gas at a better spot price.
GAIL is now forced to source alternative supplies from the global spot market, where prices are nearly three times those of long-term contracts, as a result of Gazprom’s lack of natural gas supply.
