Venture Global LNG and CNOOC Gas & Power Group Co., Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), announced the execution of a 20-year Sales and Purchase Agreement (SPA).
This marks the first LNG supply agreement signed by a US exporter with CNOOC, China’s largest importer of LNG. Under the deal, Venture Global will supply 2 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG on a free on board (FOB) basis from its Plaquemines LNG export facility, in Plaquemines Parish.
