Egypt has reportedly selected its suppliers for about 60 cargoes of liquefied natural gas it sought through what was claimed to be the largest mid-term tender ever issued.

Sources told Reuters that the 60 cargoes will be imported next year with the Swiss commodity trader, Glencore grabbing the majority with 25 cargoes while the Amsterdam-based Trafigura was awarded the right to supply 18 cargoes.

Other selected bidders in the EGAS tender issued in October, seeking 96 cargoes for delivery in 2017-2018, are BB Energy, Gunvor and Vitol, according to the report.

It was further stated that EGAS has secured its 2017 requirements with the tender, with only six cargoes to be delivered in 2018.

The cargoes for January-March delivery have been estimated at about US$7.5 per mmBtu as they have been awarded at a slope of around 15 percent to crude. The remaining cargoes for 2017 have been priced at a slope of 12 percent and below.

Under the terms of the latest tender the window in which Egypt has to pay for the delivered cargo has been extended from 90 to between 120 and 180 days.

EGAS also has an option to book additional 12 cargoes for delivery in 2017 under the original tender document.

Floating LNG

Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
