NLNG’s three trains have a combined liquefaction capacity of 9 mtpa, and long-term supply contracts account for 7.82 mtpa of this. All of these contracts are for 20 years or more and are due to expire by 2024. The prices are oil-indexed, but most of the contracts are unlikely to be renewed under the existing terms.
