Cheniere Energy has announced it will supply 1.8 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per annum to China’s ENN Natural Gas for over 20 years.

The United States has emerged as the world’s largest LNG exporter after western sanctions on major supplier Russia left Europe scrambling to find alternate sources for the commodity.

In 2021, ENN signed a 13-year deal to buy LNG from Cheniere beginning in July 2022. This was the first major binding deal for natural gas between the two nations since a long-standing trade war that brought gas deals between the two countries to a temporary standstill.

Deliveries will start in mid-2026, ramping up to 0.9 million tonne per annum (mtpa) in 2027.
