The LNG deal between Kuwait and Shell is worth around $12 billion, sources have confirmed.

Kuwait is looking to meet raising energy demands caused by hot summer months.

The country began importing LNG in 2009, signing deals with Vitol and Shell.

Kuwait also signed an LNG deal with Qatar last month.

Nasser al-Mudaf, the head of Kuwait Petroleum’s international marketing division, said the $3 billion deal was set to be announced on Monday.
