Centrica Starts Buying Cheniere LNG Under 20-year Contract

LONDON (Reuters) — Centrica has begun buying liquefied natural gas (LNG) from U.S. producer Cheniere under a long-term contract, the UK utility said in a statement on Monday.

The first cargo was loaded on LNG tanker Gaslog Skagen over the weekend of Sept. 28-29 and is heading to Europe, Centrica said.

Under their 20-year contract, Centrica will buy around 1.75 million tons of LNG per year from Train 5 of Cheniere’s Sabine Pass production facility in Louisiana.

The cargoes will be loaded on a free-on-board (FOB) basis, meaning Centrica chooses their destinations.
