Sempra Energy said on Nov. 22 that ConocoPhillips will buy five million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG from Phase 1 of the Port Arthur LNG project under development in Jefferson County, Texas.
U.S. oil and gas producers have rushed to back projects to spur domestic LNG development and exports. Western sanctions on Russia have choked an already undersupplied market and put U.S. gas prices and exports into high gear.
As preciously announced, ConocoPhillips will acquire 30% of the equity in Port Arthur LNG Phase 1 and will manage the feedgas supply requirements for the facility, the companies said.
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
The Port Arthur LNG Phase 1 project is expected to produce up to about 13.5 mtpa of LNG, while a Phase 2 project is under marketing and development.
