Qatar crisis has dealt a strong hand to Japanese utilities in talks reviewing long-term gas contracts with the top LNG exporter, likely accelerating a shift to a more openly traded global market for the fuel.

LNG volumes grew to 260 million tonnes last year from 250 million tonnes in 2015, with more than half coming from Qatar, Australia and Malaysia. Spot LNG trading made up 18 percent of supplies in 2016, according to the International Group of Liquefied Natural Gas Importers.
