Adds details, background
March 6 (Reuters) - Natural gas producer Chesapeake Energy Corp CHK.O said on Monday it would supply Gunvor Group Ltd up to 2 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) annually for 15 years.
U.S. LNG exporters have witnessed demand soar after Western sanctions on major producer Russia squeezed an already-tight global gas supply.
Under the deal, Chesapeake and Gunvor would jointly choose the liquefaction facility in the United States.
The supplies are slated to start in 2027.
