Rosneft Trading SA, a company of Rosneft Group, delivered its first LNG shipment as part of its contract with Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company. The delivery of the cargo was made by the GOLAR ICE tanker to the Ain Sukhna port within the Master LNG Supply and Purchase Agreement signed in August 2015.
The delivered cargo of LNG is the first one in Rosneft’s operational history. This result demonstrates the elevated level of trading expertise of the Company (the LNG cargo was acquired within an efficient international spot contract).
Transformational changes in the global LNG-trading market, consisting of rising volumes of spot deals, open extensive prospects for the growth potential of the Company’s trading arm. The combination of Rosneft group’s spot and long-term contracts will allow maximizing the economic efficiency of its deals whilst guaranteeing a stable LNG-marketing outlet.
