Statoil, Petronas Sign LNG Deal (Malaysia)

Statoil, Petronas Sign LNG Deal (Malaysia)

Statoil of Norway said it has this week signed an agreement to deliver LNG to Petronas at their LNG import terminal in Malaka.

We have had a very good cooperation with Petronas for many years and are very excited to land our first Asian LNG supply agreement with them,” says Eldar Sætre, executive vice president for Manufacturing, Marketing and Renewable Energy.

The agreement was signed during a ceremony at the World Gas Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on June 5th by Eldar Sætre and M Sabarudin M Amin, CEO of Petronas LNG.

Malaysia has traditionally been a major exporter of LNG with long term sales to Japan, South-Korea and Taiwan. However, increased domestic demand has led to the construction of Malaysia’s first LNG import terminal in Melaka. Statoil will deliver the first cargo under the agreement in August this year, shortly after the terminal starts operations.

There is an increased demand for LNG in Asia and we want to position Statoil to take part in that growth,” ​says Rune Bjørnson, senior vice president for Natural Gas.

About 1 billion cubic meters gas will be delivered under the flexible supply agreement that runs for 3 ½ years. This is a gas volume equivalent to the consumption of two 400MW gas power plants for nearly one year.

This news follows Statoil decision to open a LNG trading function at its office in Singapore on June 1.​​​​​​​

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
