20-Year LNG Agreement signed with Zhejiang Energy
ExxonMobil has signed a sales and purchase agreement with Zhejiang Provincial Energy Group on April 16 for liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply. Under the agreement, Zhejiang Energy is expected to receive 1 million metric tons per annum of LNG over 20 years.
“This sales and purchase agreement represents an important milestone and provides a solid foundation for our strategic partnership with Zhejiang Provincial Energy Group,” said Peter Clarke, Head of Global LNG at ExxonMobil.
“ExxonMobil shares Zhejiang Energy’s vision in developing a major LNG gateway in the Ningbo-Zhoushan region,” Clarke said. “We look forward to continuing our support for Zhejiang Energy during the construction, commissioning and operation of its Wenzhou LNG receiving terminal."
ExxonMobil has been actively re-engaged in China’s energy industry since the late 1970s. With a long-term commitment to China, ExxonMobil expects to help meet China’s energy needs through its products, technologies, partnerships and investments.
