ADNOC Gas (AG), the natural gas division of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, has signed a liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply deal with a unit of Chinese oil and gas major PetroChina (PCI).
The deal, valued at between $450m (Dh1.65bn) and $550m, will see AG supply LNG to PetroChina International Company.
AG did not disclose details about the volume, duration and commencement of LNG shipments.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE)-based gas company said the deal underlines its expanding presence, especially in the East and South Asian markets.
AG CEO Ahmed Mohamed Alebri said: “We are pleased to sign this LNG supply agreement with PCI, further strengthening our presence in one of the world’s fastest-growing gas markets.
“China continues to be a key market for ADNOC Gas, and this agreement further reinforces our role as a major LNG supplier across East and South Asia, and beyond.”
