EQUITY LIFTING SUPPORT

WHAT IS EQUITY LIFTING?

"Equity Lifting" refers to an LNG Project ownership and marketing structure, where project equity holders (Joint Venture Partners) have an entitlement to LNG and domestic gas, but also an obligation to offtake (known as "Lifting"), transport and market. Typically, one equity holder will act as the Project Operator. "Equity Lifting" is contrasted by "Joint Marketing" where a marketing and shipping organisation is formed to serve Joint Venture Partners equally. Revenue and costs from each sale are divided equally amongst the partners.

Australian LNG projects have moved predominantly to an Equity Lifting structure, mainly to allow large multinational organisations to fully own and manage the sale of single cargoes. By wholly owning multiple cargoes from multiple Equity Lifting LNG projects worldwide, a company can supply from a so-called "Portfolio" of supply sources. Such companies are known as "Portfolio Players"
