Cheniere and PTT sign long-term LNG sale and purchase agreement
On July 26, 2022, Cheniere Energy announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Corpus Christi Liquefaction, has entered into a long-term liquefied natural gas sale and purchase agreement with PTT Global LNG Company Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PTT Public Company Limited, Thailand’s largest state-owned, multinational energy company. Under the SPA, PTTGL has agreed to purchase 1.0 million tonnes per annum of LNG from CCL for twenty years beginning in 2026. The SPA calls for a combination of free-on-board and delivered ex-ship deliveries. This customized structure represents a further evolution in Cheniere’s commercial offerings tailored to the specific needs of LNG customers worldwide. The purchase price for LNG under the SPA is indexed to the Henry Hub price, plus a fixed liquefaction fee.
“We are pleased to enter into this 20-year SPA with a subsidiary of PTT, the state-owned oil and gas company of Thailand, which developed, owns, and operates Thailand’s first LNG import terminal and is an energy leader in a key, fast-growing Southeast Asian market,” said Jack Fusco, Cheniere’s President, and Chief Executive Officer. “This is the first direct LNG contract from a US LNG producer for PTTGL, and this agreement not only reflects the critical need for long-term, reliable LNG supply across the globe but also the important role LNG has to play in powering growing economies for decades to come.”
