India’s GAIL to Receive LNG Cargoes from Germany’s Sefe

Indian gas company GAIL is set to receive two LNG shipments each in March and April from Germany’s Sefe for the first time since supplies had been halted almost a year ago. GAIL Chairman Gupta said Sefe was supplying cargoes from its non-Russian portfolio in Egypt, United Arab Emirates and the United States.

“Because of force majeure, they cannot supply from Russia, so they are giving us (LNG) from non-Russian portfolio,” Gupta further stated.

He said the first cargo for March has already arrived at the Dahej terminal in western India.

GAIL agreed to a 20-year deal with Gazprom Marketing and Singapore (GMTS) in 2012 for annual purchases of an average of 2.5 million tonnes of LNG.

At the time, GMTS was a unit of Gazprom Germania, now called Sefe, but the Russian parent gave up ownership of Sefe after Western sanctions were imposed on Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine last year.

Sefe had stopped supplying LNG to the Indian company in May last year to meet its own demand.
