Industry Briefs

BP announced last week that it signed a memorandum of understanding with Brass LNG in Nigeria to purchase two million metric tons a year of liquefied natural gas (LNG). The deal, which is expected to be concluded later this year, will cover a 20-year period starting in 2010. The LNG will be delivered by Brass and used by BP to supply markets in the Atlantic basin, particularly the United States and United Kingdom. Under the flexible contract, LNG also may be delivered to other existing LNG markets and a number of proposed new terminals that BP and its partners are seeking to develop in New Jersey, Texas, elsewhere in the U.S. and in Italy. The new LNG supply will compliment BP’s equity LNG from Trinidad, Australia, Indonesia and Abu Dhabi, which will make up the majority of its portfolio, together with LNG from Egypt and third-party purchase agreements with Oman and Qatar.
