The BP DES and FOB LNG MSA allows either party to buy or sell physical LNG cargoes on a Delivered Ex-Ship and Free On Board basis respectively.
As BP operates an established LNG portfolio, both buying and selling LNG, the BP DES and FOB LNG MSA has been developed over many years to be balanced and fair between buyers and sellers. BP expects that its publication will contribute to the broader discussion around standardization and liquidity for LNG transactions.
The BP DES and FOB LNG MSA has also been refined over time to reflect current industry standards. As with BP’s General Terms & Conditions for Sales and Purchases of Crude Oil and Petroleum Products (GT&Cs), the BP DES and FOB LNG MSA will continue to evolve with developments in the LNG industry.
