Roundhill Investments, an exchange-traded fund (ETF) sponsor, launched the world's first dedicated Liquefied Natural Gas (OTC:LNGLF) (LNG) ETF on Friday. The new product, named Roundhill Alerian LNG ETF (NYSEARCA:LNGG), began trading on the New York Stock Exchange Arca, offering investors exposure to leading companies across the LNG value chain, including liquefaction, LNG carriers and regasification.

The launch of LNGG reflects the growing significance of LNG in the global energy sector. According to Dave Mazza, Chief Strategy Officer at Roundhill Investments, "LNG represents a transformative frontier in the energy sector, and its growth trajectory is evident from its rapidly expanding share within the global gas supply." He also highlighted that for climate-conscious investors, LNGG provides a practical investment solution in a transitional fuel source that is significantly cleaner than alternatives like coal.

The ETF tracks the Alerian Liquefied Natural Gas Index and offers a unique combination of growth and income in the energy sector. As of August 31, 2023, the Alerian LNG Index yielded 4.5%. The top holdings of the fund at launch include Cheniere Energy (NYSE:LNG) Inc with a 16.1% weighting, Santos Ltd with a 14.1% weighting, and Woodside (OTC:WOPEY) Energy Group Ltd with a 13.4% weighting.

The importance of LNG in the global gas supply is set to increase considerably in the coming years. It is projected to rise from 13% today to an impressive 23% by 2050. This growth will be driven by escalating demand and a significant surge in anticipated spending on greenfield LNG projects. Approved greenfield investments amounted to $27 billion in 2022 and are projected to reach $42 billion in 2024. Meanwhile, spending on U.S. LNG projects is expected to total an estimated $100 billion over the next five years.

Natural gas prices vary widely depending on a region's ability to produce the energy source domestically. LNG allows for countries like the United States to effectively export natural gas to regions like the EU and Asia, thereby helping to balance global supply and demand. For instance, U.S Henry Hub gas prices have averaged $2.58 in 2023, while European gas has traded at an average of $13.10.
