The 15-year agreement will see QatarEnergy supply about 1.8 million tons per annum (mtpa) of LNG to Bangladesh, starting in 2026.

Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the President and CEO of QatarEnergy, pointed out that the company is the largest LNG supplier to Bangladesh and Petrobangla by a large margin, delivering more than 3.5 (mtpa) from Qatar to Bangladesh.

“These supply arrangements reinforce our unwavering dedication to safeguarding the energy security of valued customers like Bangladesh and delivering the reliable energy they require for socio-economic development and prosperity”, Al-Kaabi said.

Qatar’s state-owned oil and gas company has set its sights on becoming the largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) traders in the world within five to ten years and is progressing with the development of its LNG projects.
