Russia's biggest energy producer will deliver liquefied natural gas of around 1.7 million mt/year (or 250 million cubic feet/day) to the port of Tema over 12 years.

Rosneft gas supplies will satisfy a quarter of Ghana's energy demand, strengthen its energy security and reinforce the country's position as the key LNG hub in the region.

"The signed documents open a new stage in the development of cooperation between Russia and Ghana," Rosneft Chief Executive Officer Igor Sechin said. "Rosneft is capable of meeting this [growing Ghana] demand including also through LNG and natural gas supplies. Further, the documents open up wide exploration, production and trading possibilities for the company."

Rosneft and GNPC also signed a framework cooperation agreement that envisages a joint study of high-priority directions of mutually beneficial cooperation in the development of oil and gas fields, oil and oil product supplies.

Rosneft and Oranto Petroleum Limited in Nigeria also signed Friday a memorandum of understanding on potential cooperation in the implementation of oil and gas projects in Africa.
