The agreement entails that Qatar Terminal Limited (QTL), a subsidiary of Qatar Petroleum, is expected to receive approximately 3 million tons of LNG per annum until 2035.

The agreement was signed on February 20 by Saad Al-Kaabi, Qatar’s Minister of State for Energy Affairs and the President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum, and Sandra Roche-Vu Quang, the CEO of Elengy.

“By signing this agreement, we are providing France, and Europe as a whole, reliable energy supplies, as well as increased utilization of gas as a cleaner and more environmentally friendly source of energy,” said Al-Kaabi.
