At the meeting, Mr. Ajay Shah said, Shell Group is now one of the largest energy and petrochemical groups in the world, with the strength of supplying energy products such as oil and natural gas, especially LNG. Each year, Shell Group supplies about 57.1 million tons/year for large and small partners globally.

Shell Group in general and Shell Energy in particular are looking forward to building up a long-term partnership with EVN in supplying energy products, especially LNG. Besides, Shell Energy is also ready to share experiences with and provide technology support for EVN in developing port infrastructure, LNG storage, etc.

Sharing about the energy situation in Vietnam, EVN Deputy General Director Ngo Son Hai said that Vietnam has a variety of power sources: Hydropower, thermopower, gas power. Especially, currently, the Government of Vietnam has encouraged the development of renewable energy sources, aiming to reduce the use of fossil fuels.

However, increasing the proportion of solar power, wind power, etc., also causes many challenges in the stable operation of the national power system. In this context, Vietnam is studying the use of liquefied gas (LNG) concurrently with the construction of power centers using LNG.

"It is expected that EVN will import LNG from 2021, preparing for the operation of LNG power plants in 2022 and 2023" - EVN Deputy General Director Ngo Son Hai shared information, and welcomed Shell Group delegation’s interest and participation in bidding for LNG supply.
