Jordan Cove Energy Project Provides Update on Commercial Activity
CALGARY, Alberta -- October 7, 2013
Jordan Cove Energy Project, L.P. (Jordan Cove) provided today an update of
commercial activity related to its proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export
facility located in Coos Bay, Oregon, and for the Pacific Connector Gas
Pipeline (Pacific Connector), which will transport natural gas supplies to the
Jordan Cove LNG terminal.
In what is expected to be a series of commercial updates resulting from
discussions with several prospective customers, Jordan Cove is pleased to
advise that it has executed initial customer expressions of interest by
entering into non-binding arrangements, referred to as "Heads of Agreement"
(HOA). The HOA sets out indicative commercial terms of the subsequent binding
Liquefaction Tolling Services Agreement (LTSA) and Pipeline Service Agreement
(PSA), which will be the subject of further negotiations between the parties.
Independent HOAs were recently finalized with three large-scale prospective
customers with head office locations in Indonesia, India, and an Eastern Asia
country. The volume of LNG capacity requested under each HOA either meets or
exceeds a minimum 25% capacity threshold amount under the initial six million
metric tons per annum LNG development offering by Jordan Cove and Pacific
Connector. The contract term under each agreement is proposed to be 25 years,
with extension rights.
“Signing these initial HOAs with prospective customers for liquefaction
tolling services is an important commercial milestone in the development of
our Jordan Cove LNG project,” said Don Althoff, President and CEO of Veresen.
“We’ve gained excellent traction in our commercial discussions, and we
continue to evaluate opportunities with several highly respected prospective
Jordan Cove expects a number of HOAs with prospective customers to be
executed, which will then lead to advanced customer negotiations under
long-term LTSA and PSA agreements.
