The signing of the SPA follows a non-binding Heads of Agreement which was signed in June 2018.

Tokyo Gas and Centrica have agreed to jointly purchase 2.6 million tonnes per annum, delivered ex-ship from Mozambique LNG from the start-up of production until the early 2040s.

This agreement provides the project with key foundation customers which will support the final investment decision by the Mozambique Area 1 joint venture partners, targeted for the first half of 2019.

This innovative joint procurement approach takes full advantage of Mozambique’s central location between Europe and Asia, assisting both companies to access diverse markets and proactively manage demand fluctuations across regions with different market dynamics.
