Delta Offshore Energy (DeltaOE) and LNG Limited (LNGL) have jointly announced an alliance with the Bac Lieu Provincial Government in Vietnam to deliver an LNG-to-power project for the province.
The DeltaOE led power project includes the construction and operation of an LNG import terminal, 3200 MW combined-cycle power plant and delivery of power generation to the Bac Lieu Province. The integrated project is expected to commence operations in 2023 pending finalisation of anticipated government approvals.
LNGL’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Magnolia LNG LLC, shall deliver 2 million tpy of 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, LNGL. “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 DeltaOE. “Our alliance with LNG Limited will allow the Government of Vietnam to have a stronger relationship with the US market and the long-term stability of the Henry Hub Index, which fits perfectly with the Vietnamese National Power Development Plan.”
