According to the latest Reuters report, China Petroleum and Chemical Corp. (Sinopec) has plans in place to sign a 20 year LNG agreement with US-based Cheniere Energy.

This news confirms rumours that had begun to circulate following a recent announcement by Sinopec’s President, Ma Yongsheng, and the signing of a deal between the US and China, agreeing to roll back tariffs.

The long-term supply contract will reportedly be signed as soon as the US-China trade dispute formerly ends.

Sinopec and Cheniere had previously reached an agreement on a deal in late 2018, however it was never formalised as trade friction increased in volatility. According to a Reuters sources, “Without the trade spat, the deal should have been signed some time ago.”
