ADNOC has signed a 15-year Heads of Agreement (LNG agreement) with Singapore-based subsidiary of China’s ENN Natural Gas, ENN LNG, for the delivery of at least 1 million metric tons per annum (mmtpa) of liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The LNG will primarily be sourced from ADNOC’s low-carbon Ruwais LNG project, currently under development in Al Ruwais Industrial City, Abu Dhabi. The deliveries are expected to start in 2028, upon the commencement of the facility’s commercial operations.

Mr. Rashid Khalfan Al Mazrouei, ADNOC Senior Vice President of Marketing, said that, “This landmark LNG agreement from our ongoing Ruwais LNG project enhances ADNOC’s position as a reliable and responsible global energy provider and creates new opportunities for value-creation across our gas value chain as natural gas demand continues to increase.”

“We are making excellent progress in delivering this strategic project as we grow our portfolio of lower-carbon energy solutions to enable the energy transition and we will continue to support our customers and partners on this journey,” Mr. Al Mazrouei added.

The Ruwais LNG project is set to be the first LNG export facility in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to run on clean power, making it one of the lowest carbon intensity LNG plants in the world, supporting ADNOC’s accelerated Net Zero by 2045 ambition.

When completed, the project, which consists of two 4.8 mmtpa LNG liquefaction trains with a total capacity of 9.6 mmtpa, will more than double ADNOC’s LNG production capacity to help meet the increased global demand for natural gas.

According to the statement, “The LNG agreement is contingent upon a final investment decision (FID) on the project, including regulatory approvals, and the negotiation of a definitive Sale and Purchase Agreement between the two companies.”
