Reuters is reporting that Tokyo Gas and Royal Dutch Shell have signed a Heads of Agreement (HoA) for a purchase of LNG.

The agreement is for a quantity of 500 000 tpy of LNG and is based partly on a coal-linked pricing formula.

A spokesman from Tokyo Gas reported, “as far as Tokyo Gas and Shell know, this is the first time a pricing formula linked with a coal index has been used with LNG contracts.”

Under the HoA, Tokyo Gas will purchase LNG from Shell’s global portfolio for a period of 10 years from April 2020.
