PTT Exploration and Production Public Company Limited (PTTEP) disclosed that Mozambique LNG1 Company Pte. Ltd., the jointly owned sales entity of PTTEP and joint venture partners of Mozambique Rovuma Offshore Area 1 project, has entered into LNG Sale and Purchase Agreements (SPAs) with Pertamina, a state-owned energy company of Indonesia, which calls for 1 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) for a term of 20 years, and Bharat Gas Resources Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (BPCL) for 1 MTPA for a term of 15 years.

Phongsthorn Thavisin, President and Chief Executive Officer of PTTEP, said, "The two deals are another considerable success in addition to three SPAs signed earlier this month. They further reflect the potential of the project in providing a long-term reliable source of clean energy for many years to come."

These latest agreements bring the total long-term sales to approximately 9.5 MTPA, a sufficient volume of long-term SPAs, demonstrating the significant progress towards the final investment decision (FID) in the first half of this year.

The project is progressing toward developing onshore LNG plant consisting of two initial LNG trains with a total nameplate capacity of 12.88 MTPA to support the development of the Golfinho/Atum fields located entirely within Offshore Area 1.
