Qatar Petroleum (QP) has entered into a new long-term Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA) with Pakistan State Oil Company Limited (PSO) for the supply of up to 3 million tons per annum (mtpa) of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

Under the 10-year agreement, LNG deliveries to Pakistan’s world-class receiving terminals will commence in 2022 and continue until the end of 2031, Qatar Petroleum said.

HE Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi welcomed the SPA signing and said: “We are delighted to enter into this new long-term agreement with Pakistan State Oil Company Limited, and to continue our contributions towards meeting Pakistan’s increasing energy demand.”

Pakistan currently has two operational LNG receiving terminals, the Engro LNG Receiving Terminal and Pakistan GasPort LNG Receiving Terminal, both of which utilise Floating Storage and Regasification Units moored in Port Qasim. There are a number of additional terminals currently under consideration by various private sector players in the country.

This is the second such agreement signed between Qatari and Pakistani entities since 2016, when Qatargas signed a long-term agreement to supply PSO with 3.75 mtpa of LNG. This agreement raises the total of long-term LNG supplies from Qatar to Pakistan to 6.75 mtpa.
