National Grid plc has boosted long-term LNG supply to the UK from the United States and North Africa with two contracts as it expands imports at its Grain LNG terminal.

London-based National Grid launched an auction in September seeking bids for up to 9 million metric tons/year (mmty) in regasification capacity at Grain, Europe’s largest liquefied natural gas import terminal.

Venture Global LNG LLC was awarded a 16-year, 3 mmty equivalent contract for regasification at Grain starting in 2029. The agreement covers cargoes sent from any of Venture’s Louisiana terminals, including the proposed 24 mmty capacity CP2 LNG project.
