Qatargas to supply 1.3m tonnes a year of LNG for 20 years

DOHA: Qatargas will supply 1.3 million tonnes a year of liquefied national gas (LNG) to Pakistan for 20 years, with the first cargo expected to be delivered in 2018, the world’s biggest LNG exporter said in a statement on Thursday.

Under the terms of the agreement with Pakistan’s Global Energy Infrastructure Limited, Qatargas can increase the volume to 2.3m tonnes per annum.

In February Pakistan said it had signed a 15-year agreement to import up to 3.75m tonnes of liquefied natural gas a year from Qatar, a major step in filling Pakistan’s energy shortfall.
