Oman LNG signs liquefied gas deal with BP Singapore
The free-on-board (FOB) contract, commencing this month, will span a period of seven years for lifting 1.1 million tonnes per annum (mtpa), equivalent to approximately 18 LNG cargoes annually, Oman LNG said in a statement carried by state-run Oman News Agency.
The contract is a boost to the global LNG market where Oman LNG currently contributes a significant amount, the company said without divulging the financial details of the deal.
“The revenues from this transaction will benefit Oman’s national economy and boost our GDP,” sid Mohammed bin Hamad al-Rumhy, Oman’s minister of oil and gas and chairman of Oman LNG.
“This new agreement will not only unlock additional reserves but will also sustain our LNG business. Oman will continue to be a global preferred destination for sourcing clean energy.” ■
