LNGL, Delta Offshore Energy Agree on Supply Deal to Vietnam
LNGL's wholly-owned subsidiary, Magnolia LNG LLC (Magnolia), shall deliver two million tonnes per annum (2 mtpa) of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to DeltaOE pursuant to a supply and purchase agreement (SPA), on a free-on-board (FOB) basis for a 20-year term with options to extend the term. DeltaOE shall, in turn, deliver gas to the power plant, generate electricity, and sell its output to the province pursuant to a power purchase agreement (PPA). The SPA and PPA are linked on a back-to-back basis providing an integrated LNG-to-power solution for the province.
Specific terms and conditions of both the SPA and PPA, respectively, have been negotiated in term sheet form and the various contracting parties are currently completing the SPA and PPA contracts for execution. Routine conditions precedent apply in both the SPA and PPA documents and the parties shall make reasonable efforts to complete these contracts expeditiously.
"This agreement is a major achievement for the Magnolia LNG project as we progress our global commercial and marketing push toward a final investment decision," said Greg Vesey, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, LNG Limited. "We are pleased to welcome Delta Offshore Energy, the Government of Vietnam, and the Bac Lieu Provincial Standing Committee to the Magnolia LNG project, as customers that value the advantages Magnolia enjoys. This agreement represents a significant advancement of our long relationships held with DeltaOE, the province, and Vietnamese leadership, including our earlier hosting of the province leadership and DeltaOE at the Magnolia site."
"Delta Offshore Energy's Bac Lieu project addresses Vietnam's need for an LNG import terminal to provide access to growing the LNG industry as a feedstock for electricity generation," said Bobby Quintos, Engineering Managing Director for Delta Offshore Energy. "Our alliance with LNG Limited will allow the Government of Vietnam to have a stronger relationship with the U.S. market and the long-term stability of the Henry Hub Index, which fits perfectly with the Vietnamese National Power Development Plan."
