LNG supply and demand
The supply of LNG is to meet the demand and requirements of CPC’s customers in Taiwan. The gas will be shipped from the PLL complex in Bintulu, Sarawak and other supply sources.
Petronas began supplying LNG to CPC in 1995 through a 20-year contract for a supply of 2.25 million tpa of LNG. The signing of these new contracts is expected to further strengthen the ties between the two companies.
