South Korea Signs 20-Year LNG Deal with Qatar

SEOUL (Reuters) — South Korea's energy ministry said on Monday it had signed a 20-year LNG supply agreement with Qatar for the next 20 years starting in 2025.

South Korea's state-run Korea Gas Corp will buy 2 million tons of LNG annually from Qatar Petroleum.

"This long-term contract is considered to have favorable contract conditions, which would help stabilize LNG supply as well as to significantly drop fees," the ministry said in a statement.

It did not provide financial details of the agreement.

The energy ministry added that KOGAS buys 9 million tons of LNG annually from Qatar through long-term contracts and a contract worth 4.9 million tons of LNG is expected to end in 2024.
