Tokyo Gas has signed a sale and purchase agreement (SPA) with Mitsui & Co., for the purchase of liquefied natural gas from the Cameron LNG project in the US.
The project is operated by Cameron LNG LLC, a company in which Mitsui & Co. will have a stake. Cameron LNG will build a new natural gas liquefaction plant in the Louisiana terminal, to refine and liquefy shale gas and other US-produced natural gas, exporting a maximum of 12 million tpa.
Mitsui & Co. will handle 4 million tpa, of which approximately 520,000 tpa will be purchased by Tokyo Gas at Henry Hub prices. The contract provides for more flexible destination than LNG contracts in the past.
In April 2013, Tokyo Gas reached an agreement to purchase 1.4 million tpa of LNG from the Cove Point LNG project.
