Syrian Flare-Up Not To Affect LNG Exports

News: Liquified natural gas (LNG) exports from Qatar will remain unaffected if the US launches an attack on Syria, according to Qatar Gas Transport Company (Nakilat)'s Managing Director Mohamed Ghannam. Qatargas and RasGas will be able to supply LNG, while Nakilat will be able to deliver the cargoes as per schedule, Ghannam added. Meanwhile, the Bank of America Merrill Lynch predicts that a prolonged Syrian conflict could result in an increase in oil prices to US$160 a barrel.
