Adnoc signs initial LNG supply pact for Ruwais project

UAE’s Adnoc has signed a 15-year heads of agreement with China’s ENN for the delivery of at least 1mn tonnes/year of LNG from it Ruwais LNG project, currently under development in Al Ruwais Industrial City, Abu Dhabi.

The deliveries are expected to start in 2028, upon the start of the facility’s commercial operations. Adnoc’s existing LNG facilities are located on Das Island and have a capacity of 6mn tonnes/year. 

According to Adnoc, the Ruwais LNG project is set to be the first LNG export facility in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to run on clean power, supporting the company’s accelerated net zero by 2045 ambition.

When completed, the project, which consists of two 4.8mn tonnes/year LNG liquefaction trains with a total capacity of 9.6mn tonnes/year, will more than double Adnoc's LNG production capacity to help meet increased global demand for natural gas.

The LNG agreement is contingent upon a final investment decision on the project, including regulatory approvals, and the negotiation of a definitive sale and purchase agreement between the two companies.
