Leonid Mikhelson, NOVATEK’s Chairman of the Management Board, noted:
- We have reached another milestone in successful marketing of NOVATEK’s share of LNG to be produced by our Arctic LNG 2 project,
- This is another LNG SPA for delivery to the Chinese market, which is in line with our LNG strategy to expand sales to the Asia-Pacific region with its growing demand for clean-burning natural gas
The SPA follows on from the Heads of Agreement signed by parties on 2 June 2021 during the St.Petersburg International Economic Forum, and stipulates the supply of up to 1 million tons of LNG per annum from the Arctic LNG 2 project for a term of 15 years.
The LNG will be delivered on a DES basis to Zhejiang Energy’s LNG terminals in China.
The Arctic LNG 2, is located in Gydan, Northern Russia and is one of the world’s largest LNG projects under construction with a total capacity of 3 x 6.6 million tpy.
Each of the 3 trains will deliver 6.6 million tpy of LNG, a key energy transition fuel as gas is 40% less CO2 intensive than coal.
The project is expected to start production of LNG in 2023.
