BP signs $20bn deal with China
BP has signed a $20bn deal to supply China with liquefied natural gas over 20 years starting in 2019, writes Michael Kavanagh.

Under the terms of the agreement, the UK oil and gas company will ship 1.5m tonnes of gas for Cnooc, the state-controlled Chinese energy group, per year.

The annual volumes – equivalent to 72bn cubic feet – represent more than a tenth of the 13m tonnes imported last year by Cnooc, which is ranked as China’s leading and the world’s third-largest LNG importer.

Bob Dudley, BP chief executive, said the deal would help China’s drive in switching more of its energy supply from coal to less polluting hydrocarbons.

“We are pleased to support China’s commitment to improving its air quality,” he said. The agreement was signed by company executives in London in the presence of UK prime minister David Cameron and Chinese premier Li Keqiang.

The deal was part of a number of agreements signed during a state visit by the Chinese premier.

It follows a $400bn gas supply deal stuck between Gazprom of Russia and China National Petroleum Corp, China’s largest state-owned oil company, in May that will run for 30 years from 2018.

In the past two years Cnooc has also signed deals with BP’s rival UK-listed gas supplier BG Group to supply a total of 8.6m tonnes a year from its LNG project in Queensland, Australia, under two separate 20-year deals.

英国石油(BP)签署了价值200亿美元的协议,将从2019年起持续20年向中国供应液化天然气(LNG)。

根据协议条款,这家英国的油气公司每年将向中国国有能源集团中海油(Cnooc)供应150万吨LNG。

每年的供应量合720亿立方英尺,相当于中海油去年进口量(1300万吨)的逾十分之一。中海油是中国第一、世界第三大LNG进口商。

BP首席执行官戴德立(Bob Dudley)称,这笔交易将帮助中国进一步改变能源结构,从煤炭转向污染更低的碳氢化合物。

“我们很高兴为中国改善空气质量的承诺提供支持,”他表示。双方企业高管在伦敦签署了协议,英国首相戴维?卡梅伦(David Cameron)和中国总理李克强出席了签字仪式。

这是李克强对英国正式访问期间两国签署的多项协议之一。

此前,俄罗斯天然气工业公司(Gazprom)与中国石油天然气集团(China National Petroleum Corp)在5月签署价值4000亿美元的天然气供应协议,协议将从2018年起生效,持续30年。

过去两年,中海油还与BP的竞争对手、在英上市的天然气供应商英国天然气集团(BG Group)签署了两份独立的20年协议,从后者在澳大利亚昆士兰州的LNG项目每年购买860万吨LNG。
