Japan’s Mitsubishi Corporation has reached an agreement to acquire a 25% stake of the Summit Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal in Bangladesh.
The remaining 75 percent stake of the terminal will remain with local conglomerate Summit Corporation.
The latest agreement follows Mitsubishi and Summit signing a memorandum of understanding in March to jointly pursue an integrated LNG-to-power development.
The LNG terminal is currently under construction and is expected to be operational by March 2019.
The project will include a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) to be installed off the coast of Moheshkali, where it will receive and regasify LNG procured by national energy firm Petrobangla. The planned LNG import volumes are about 3.5m tonnes per annum.
