Signing of a Letter of Intent with El Paso Corporation for the purchase of LNG

Phillips Petroleum Company has recently announced the signing of a Letter of Intent with El Paso Corporation for the long-term purchase by El Paso of LNG from a plant to be built by Phillips near Darwin. A full copy of the Press release concerning this agreement can be found in the Phillips Newsroom.

Temporary measures have been put in place to allow Suppliers and Contractors interested in this development to register their preliminary interest. These measures will remain in force until such a time that Phillips makes further announcements concerning the LNG development.

How to Register for the LNG Project.

2. Select "Register" - NB: Please do this even if you have registered before and possess a PIN number - for LNG you are required to register your interest again.

3. Complete all mandatory fields in the registration form only (marked with asterix). No other information is required.

4. Go to the scrolling category menu's and in Product/Service 01 select 'LNG'. NB: Please do not select and register for any other categories other than 'LNG'.

6. Follow remaining instructions and exit registration system.,

Once registered, your contact information will be retained by Phillips and parties registering will be advised at a later date how to make formal applications to Phillips to participate in the LNG project.

Phillips is still focused upon the activities necessary to secure this development and therefore requests that all communications be channeled through this procedure and asks for patience whilst formal channels of communication are established for this new development. No firm details of schedule or project organisation are presently available but Phillips does recognise the interest held by suppliers and contractors in this new development. Phillips intends to publish further information as soon as possible.
