Background

In 2017, the LNG import project was launched as a joint venture between Sharjah National Oil Corporation (60 percent) and Uniper (40 percent). The terminal is expected to have an import capacity of 1 billion cubic feet per day (bcfd). The project was initially scheduled to start operations in 2019.[1]

In 2019, Sharjah National Oil Corporation (SNOC) decided to retain 100 percent of the equity of the Sharjah LNG terminal project after the cancellation of its joint venture with Germany-based energy company Uniper. At the same time, SNOC announced 2020 as the new expected start year.[1]
