History and business

Excelerate Energy was founded in 2003, but its shares were not listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) until April 2022. Its way of doing business can be considered revolutionary in the global approach to clean, affordable and reliable energy. Comprehensive LNG solutions remove barriers that commonly plague gas and power projects around the world. The company provides energy independence and brings real energy solutions to the countries that need it most with the world's largest portfolio of floating LNG terminals, a track record of safely planning, constructing and operating complex projects. Excelerate Energy has established itself as a leading inventor and provider of floating LNG systems. As market dynamics and clients' energy demands develop, the firm has leveraged its problem-solving capabilities to create adaptable, integrated services.[2]

 

Contracts signed with Bulgaria and Germany

The Company entered into an agreement with Bulgaria's Overgas Inc. on 14 July 2022. The companies have agreed that EE will sell liquefied natural gas ("LNG") to them. Overgas will enter into a ten-year contract with Excelerate (or an affiliate) to purchase up to 1.0 billion cubic meters of regasified LNG per year through the Vlora terminal and the proposed Vlora-Fier pipeline, which will connect to existing infrastructure via the European Southern Gas Corridor.[3]

 

In Germany, on the other hand, the deal was somewhat different. They signed a term sheet with ENGIE for flexible and secure LNG regasification capacity, as Germany is still looking for an alternative to Russian supplies.[4]

 

Outstanding energy achievements

The company provides solutions worldwide. Some of the most important are:

 

·       Providing a 25 percent increase in total gas supply in Bangladesh and the country's first LNG terminal.

·       Providing 15 percent of Pakistan's domestic daily natural gas requirement, as well as setting up the country's first LNG import terminal.

·       Saved Argentina up to US$12 billion since 2008 through the non-combustion of oil.

·       They saved $1.2 billion in energy and heating costs in the US in 2019.
