Qatar Petroleum Key Developments

Qatar Petroleum Announces the Establishment of Ocean LNG for Marketing its International LNG Portfolio

Qatar Petroleum announced the establishment of Ocean LNG Limited, for the purpose of marketing its future international LNG supply portfolio sourced outside of the State of Qatar. The decision to establish a marketing entity to manage its future LNG supply portfolio sourced outside of Qatar was driven by its aspirations to continue to be a global LNG leader, and to invest in LNG projects outside Qatar. A branch office of Ocean LNG Limited will be established in the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) in Doha to manage and undertake the activities of Ocean LNG, reinforcing Doha’s position as the world’s LNG capital.

Qatargas Inks LNG Supply Deal with UK Unit of Petronas

Qatargas announced that it has signed a five-year sales and purchase agreement with Petronas LNG UK. Qatargas will deliver 1.1 million tonnes of LNG per year to the UK-based venture until December 31, 2023, extending a current contract that was due to expire on December 31, 2018, it said in a statement. The LNG will be supplied from Qatargas 4 and will be delivered to Dragon LNG terminal at Milford Haven in the United Kingdom.

Qatar Petroleum Signs a New Long-Term Gas Sale and Purchase Agreement with Dolphin Energy

Qatar Petroleum announced it has signed a new long-term gas sale and purchase agreement with Dolphin Energy, under which the Qatari state firm will deliver additional volumes to the United Arab Emirates. No further details were given on the duration of the contract, volumes or the all-important price. The company has been sending gas via the Dolphin subsea pipeline to the UAE and neighboring Oman for around $1.35/MMBtu since 2007 under long-term agreements to supply around 2 Bcf/d (20.7 Bcm/yr) to both countries. On top of this, Qatar has offered interruptible supplies of gas to the UAE, at a different price, because the 3.2 Bcf/d pipeline has additional capacity. The Dolphin deal appears to fulfill both Qatari and UAE objectives. Qatar, prefers long-term agreements, while the UAE is seeking additional supplies to provide energy security amid soaring demand, as its domestic development options, particularly of sour gas, have been hampered by commercial disagreements. It is understood that Oman has not signed up for more gas via Dolphin, whose shareholders are Abu Dhabi's Mubadala Development Co. on 51%, and Total and Occidental Petroleum on 24.5% each, even though its own gas supply situation is looking tight.
