Reuters exclusively revealed that QatarEnergy will sign a long-term liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply deal with Bangladesh’s state-owned gas company Petrobangla on Thursday, the second Asian sales deal to be sealed for Qatar’s North Field expansion project. The 15-year agreement is for the supply of 2 million tonnes annually.
QatarEnergy to sign long-term LNG supply deal with Bangladesh
Qatar is the world’s top LNG exporter and competition for LNG has ramped up since the start of the Ukraine war, with Europe in particular needing vast amounts to help replace Russian pipeline gas that used to make up almost 40% of the continent’s imports. The two-phase expansion plan will raise Qatar’s liquefaction capacity to 126 million tonnes per year by 2027 from 77 million.
