Petronas said the maiden LNG cargoes to Yangon were sold on an FOB basis, amounting to a total LNG volume of 190,000 cubic meters under the terms of the agreement with CNTIC VPower.

"Both LNG cargoes were loaded at Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu, Sarawak, and were delivered on 7 May 2020, onboard the CNTIC VPower Global, and on 3 June 2020, onboard the Golar Kelvin," Petronas said.

"With Myanmar as the latest nation to adopt LNG as a form of cleaner energy, Petronas looks forward to being a long-term partner and supplier, leveraging on our world-class reliability, as well as innovative and customer-centric solutions," Petronas LNG Chief Executive Abdul Aziz Othman said.

Petronas said it allowed the 28,000 cubic meter vessel CNTIC VPower Global to dock at its Bintulu terminal where cooling down services were provided.
