The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) has signed a 15-year liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply agreement with German energy major Energie Baden-Württemberg AG.

The agreement includes the delivery of 0.6 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG, primarily sourced from Adnoc’s lower-carbon Ruwais LNG project, currently under development in Abu Dhabi’s Al Ruwais Industrial City.

The Ruwais plant will be the first LNG export facility in the Middle East and Africa region to run on clean power, leveraging the latest technologies and artificial intelligence (AI) tools to minimise emissions and drive efficiency. 

The agreement is the third long-term LNG supply deal for the Ruwais plant. The deliveries are expected to start in 2028 upon the start of the facility’s commercial operations.

The new agreement builds on the UAE-Germany energy security and industry accelerator (ESIA) and supports Germany’s drive to diversify its energy sources, said Adnoc executive vice president, downstream business management Fatema Al Nuaimi.

ESIA, signed in 2022, aims to advance cooperation in energy security, decarbonisation and lower-carbon fuels.
