Gazprom in for Cameroon LNG

Gazprom Marketing & Trading, a unit of Russian energy giant Gazprom,  has agreed to offtake the full 1.2m tonnes per annum of output from Perenco’s FLNG project in Cameroon, Interfax has reported.

Golar LNG, Perenco and Cameroon’s state-owned oil and gas company Société Nationale des Hydrocarbures (SNH) reached an agreement on the Cameroon FLNG project on September 30.

The facility, located offshore the Cameroonian port of Kribi, is scheduled to start production in the second quarter of 2017, which would make it Africa’s first FLNG project to come onstream.

Golar LNG will provide liquefaction, storage and offloading services to SNH and Perenco as upstream joint venture partners.

The Russian gas major has also signed heads of agreements for offtake from Exmar’s delayed FLNG project in Colombia and Delek Energy’s Tamar FLNG project offshore Israel.
