The SPA, which was signed in December of 2011, commenced on March 1. Under the terms of the SPA, Cheniere will sell and make available for delivery to GAIL approximately 3.5 million tonnes of LNG per year.

Speaking about the deal, GAIL chairman and managing director B.C. Tripathi said that, “GAIL is one of the foundation customers of Cheniere having signed the contract in 2011.”

He added that the commencement of the US supplies to GAIL, the company’s portfolio will be diversified on price indexation and geographical locations.
