The Energy Policy Administrative Committee on Monday gave the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (Egat) the go-ahead for the first time to import Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) totalling 130,000 tonnes.

 

Energy Minister Sontirat Sontijirawong said after a committee meeting that it acknowledged Egat’s plan to import LNG purchased on spot markets on a trial basis.

 

The state agency will import LNG in two cargoes, each carrying 65,000 tonnes. The first import will take place in December and the second in April next year.
