Canada's first long-term contract to supply LNG for China

FortisBC has signed Canada’s first long-term supply agreement to produce liquefied natural gas for export to China, the company said in a statement.

Under the two-year agreement with China’s Top Speed Energy Corp, 53,000 tons of LNG will be shipped from the Tilbury facility in British Columbia to China by summer 2021, said Douglas Stout, vice president of market development and external relations for privately-owned FortisBC.

The agreement is the first of its kind to secure regular deliveries to China, said Stout.

“There is strong demand for Canadian LNG in China and this is an exciting time to be working in the industry here in B.C,” he added.

Since 2017 FortisBC has been supplying LNG to customers for export to China on a spot basis.

Top Speed Energy Chief Executive Officer Chen Jianrong said his company was pleased to be working with FortisBC to move Canadian exports to China.

The contract was also welcomed by the Canadian government, which has been keen to see a Canadian LNG export industry develop in British Columbia.

“The announcement of an LNG contract at Tilbury is an encouraging step for Canada’s LNG export industry,” said Amarjeet Sohi, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources in a statement.
