Qatar May Require ConocoPhillips to Take LNG Supply to Golden Pass

According to Tuesday’s Platts LNG Daily, Qatar may force ConocoPhillips to send its Qatari LNG supply to the planned Golden Pass regasification terminal in Sabine, Texas, instead of the ConocoPhillips financed Freeport LNG terminal in Freeport, Texas. The Golden Pass terminal’s location near the Texas-Louisiana border provides a better opportunity for Qatar to take advantage of higher natural gas prices in the area. Qatar Petroleum (70%) and ExxonMobil (30%) jointly own the Golden Pass terminal. [Subscription required]
