Norway’s Equinor ASA has agreed to supply one of India’s largest chemical manufacturers using its growing portfolio of Norwegian and U.S. LNG under a new long-term sales and purchase agreement (SPA).

Deepak Fertilisers and Petrochemicals Corp. Ltd. has secured 0.65 million metric tons/year (mmty) of liquefied natural gas for 15 years from Equinor that it plans to use mostly as feedstock for a recently commissioned ammonia plant.

The SPA marks Deepak’s first direct supply agreement for LNG and Equinor’s largest deal with a private Indian company. Equinor’s Helge Haugane, senior vice president for Gas and Power, said it also opens the door for future collaboration on propane, ethane and low-carbon ammonia feedstocks.
