Qatar Petroleum and Pavilion Energy have signed a strategic liquified natural gas (LNG) sale and purchase agreement (SPA) that will provide Singapore as much as 1.8 million tons per year (mt/y) starting from 2023, according to a press release.

The contract, which runs for ten years, is another example of the inexorable transition to greener fuel with stringent climate targets to be met. 

Tan Sri Mohd Hassan Marican, Chairman of Pavilion Energy, said, “The inaugural LNG cargo Pavilion Energy imported into Singapore for downstream supply in 2018 originated from Qatar. We are delighted to enhance our strategic relationship with Qatar Petroleum, the world’s largest LNG producer. This partnership will strengthen our core Singapore market and our role as a global energy trader.”

As per this novel contract, each cargo delivered under the agreement between Qatar Petroleum’s trading arm and Pavilion Energy will come with a statement of how much greenhouse gas emissions it caused.
