Total, CNOOC Ink LNG Deal

Total said it has signed an LNG cooperation agreement with China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC).

Under the terms of an existing 15 year contract, Total has been supplying China with up to 1 million tons per year of LNG since 2010. In addition to agreeing on a price review regarding this existing supply, the companies have set a framework for an additional supply of 1 million tons per year of LNG as well as further cooperation throughout the LNG value chain, Total said in a statement.

Total already supplies more than 8% of the Chinese market, with 5 million tons of LNG already delivered between 2010 and 2014. In the coming years the company will benefit from additional supply sources in Australia, Russia and the US, complementing existing Middle East and African sources, in order to respond to China’s growing LNG demand.

“As a world leader in LNG, Total seeks to strengthen its position in Asia’s growing LNG markets, where China is among the largest players with 20% annual growth. This new agreement allows us to expand our LNG supply and reinforces our cooperation with Chinese companies”, outlined Yves-Louis Darricarrère, President Total Upstream.

CNOOC is a pioneer of China’s LNG industry and the third largest LNG importer in the world with 13 million tons of LNG imported in 2013. Currently, CNOOC operates 6 LNG receiving terminals in Guangdong, Fujian, Zhejiang, Shanghai and Tianjin with further terminals under construction.
