Cheniere Energy Inc. signed its second long-term LNG sales and purchase agreement in the past week on July 26, this time with Thailand’s largest state-owned company PTT Public Co. Ltd.

“This is the first direct LNG contract from a U.S. LNG producer for PTT Global,” Cheniere President and CEO Jack Fusco said July 26 in a press statement.

Houston-based Cheniere Energy entered the long-term LNG sales and purchase agreement with PTT Global LNG Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of PTT Public, for 1 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of supply starting in 2026 and spanning 20 years. The deal follows a similar one recently signed with PetroChina Co. and allows Cheniere to provide critical gas supply to clients in Asia seeking to secure LNG amid rising demand for the energy source as global economies shift from oil and coal to cleaner energy alternatives.
