Centrica Signs LNG Heads of Agreement with Delfin

Centrica - Press release

Centrica plc and Delfin Midstream Inc. today announced the signing of a Heads of Agreement to
purchase 1.0 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of Liquefied Natural Gas for 15-years on a
Free on Board (“FOB”) basis at the Delfin Deepwater Port, located 40 nautical miles off the coast of
Louisiana.

This agreement provides Delfin with another key foundation customer which will facilitate a Final
Investment Decision (FID) for the first floating LNG export facility in the United States by the end of
this year, with operations expected to commence in 2026.

Dudley Poston, CEO of Delfin, said:
“We are very pleased to enter into this agreement with Centrica and continue to rapidly advance
Delfin’s position as a leading source of reliable low-cost energy from the safety of the US at
compelling prices. Market demand for long-term LNG continues to be strong and buying activity from
Europe and various other geographies has accelerated over the past few months. As a modular
project that can make FID in 3.5 MTPA increments, this agreement materially advances our first
vessel’s path towards FID later this year
Against a challenging geopolitical and macroeconomic environment Centrica has been working to
bolster the UK and Ireland’s energy security both now and over the longer term. Last month Centrica
signed an additional £4bn supply agreement with Equinor to supply 4.5 million UK homes through to
2025, and this £7bn agreement with Delfin, which starts in 2026, will underpin the expansion of US
LNG export capacity, an increasingly important source of stable, reliable future gas supply.


Chris O’Shea, Centrica Group Chief Executive, said:
“Natural gas has now been recognised as an essential transition fuel on the path to net zero just at
the point geopolitical uncertainty is impacting the global gas market. Additional US gas export
capacity will help increase UK, European and global energy security, reflecting the increasing
importance of LNG in the global gas supply chain. I’m delighted to sign this Heads of Agreement with
Delfin as we continue to deliver our new strategy, growing Centrica’s LNG portfolio and ensuring that
we increase our access to a diversified range of reliable gas supplies for our customers.”


UK Secretary of State for Business and Energy Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng MP said:
“A key component of our Energy Security Strategy is that natural gas is a key transition fuel on the
road to clean, affordable, home-grown energy. From renewables to nuclear, we have ambitious plans
for greater energy independence, but we are also realistic about our energy needs now and in the
years ahead. That means we need to secure more diverse and reliable sources of natural gas from
friends, allies and strategic partners.
“Today’s deal between Centrica and Delfin is positive news for the UK, helping to ensure our diversity
of supply from reliable sources - like our friends in the United States - for many years to come.”
