Liquefied natural gas (LNG) that is of a specification with very low, high heating value (HHV). Lean LNG liquid stream is predominately methane with some minor quantities of ethane. Lean LNG may be required to meet fuel quality specifications and standards required by LNG-powered vehicles and other LNG-fuelled equipment. Leaner LNG can be produced through the extraction of the heaviest components, namely the LPGs, propane and butane. Rich LNG, or Hot LNG, with high HHV also produced for some market segments.

The Energy Risk Glossary, now in its eighth edition, provides an at-a-glance explanation of the myriad specialised terms and acronyms used in energy trading and risk management.
This year, the guide has been updated by Aviv Handler of ETR Advisory. Energy Risk would like to thank him for his input into this edition, which benefits greatly from his valuable experience and insight into energy markets.
The fast-changing nature of these markets means much has changed since our last edition – almost 200 new entries and revisions have been made this year. Reflecting the increasing importance of regulation, definitions of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFid) and the Ljubljana-based Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (Acer) make it into the glossary for the first time. A focus on improving back-office infrastructure and mitigating counterparty risk is also apparent from the inclusion of terms such as ‘portfolio reconciliation’ and ‘portfolio compression’.
The glossary is extensively cross-referenced, making for easy and thorough searches. We hope you find it useful.
