LNG Sale and Purchase Agreement
(Co-chaired by: James English, Patricia Tiller, Ryan Pereira)
The newly formed LNG Sale and Purchase Agreement committee has the objective of drafting an AIPN Model Form LNG SPA. This LNG SPA will only address the sale and purchase of LNG on a long-term FOB basis, and will not address sales contemplating a DES/DAP structure. The committee will however draft guidance notes to discuss conversion of the base agreement to a DES/DAP structure. Key issues will include purchase structure, start date, term, contract quantity, pricing, price review, quality standards, destination restrictions and flexibility, force majeure, scheduling, and transportation. The Committee will generally adopt the boilerplate terms of the LNG MSA. As a general objective, the agreement will attempt to provide the LNG industry with a neutral agreement appropriate for long term buyers, producers, and portfolio aggregators.
