Japan's JERA signs supply deal with Canada LNG project
JERA, the world's top buyer of liquefied natural gas, said it had signed an agreement with a Mitsubishi Corp unit to buy up to 16 cargoes, or 1.2 million tons per year (Mtpy), of LNG from the LNG Canada project.
The heads of agreement (HOA) signed between JERA and Diamond Gas International is for about 15 years from the business year starting from April 2024, said JERA, a joint venture between Tokyo Electric Power and Chubu Electric Power.
The deal will be the first time JERA procures LNG from Canada, it said in a statement.
JERA also said that the agreement was in line with the Japan Fair Trade Commission ruling in June 2017, which declared so-called destination restriction clauses to be anti-competitive and called for destination flexibility in LNG contracts.
The C$40 billion ($30 billion) LNG Canada project led by Royal Dutch Shell was given the go-ahead by the Anglo-Dutch giant and its partners in October last year, making it the fuel's first major new project to win approval in recent years.
Buyers from the project so far include trading house Vitol as well as Asian utilities such as Tokyo Gas , Toho Gas and Korea Gas Corp (Kogas).

A New Approach to Large Medium Voltage Drives
By attending this webinar, you will learn the benefits of using a single-channel, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) solution for applications above 9,000Hp with operating voltages from 11kV to 13.8kV. We will explore a VFD solution that does not require a step-up output transformer but still provides maximum control, environmental and motor flexibility to the end user. We will also discuss how to provide maximum reliability using power cell redundancy and the removal of water cooled components. The topics covered in the webinar include:
•A brief review of the multi-cell M2C topology
•A review of the physical implementation and the advantages it offers to the end user
•A presentation of the various implementations and ratings available for use on typical pump, compressor and fan applications.
