Ras Laffan Liquefied Natural Gas Company (RasGas) will supply 8.3 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to South Korea in 2011, which represents a quarter of the Asian country’s gas demand, according to Qatar’s energy minister.

The Qatari company will deliver more than 7 million tonnes on long-term contracts this year and has delivered more than 1 million tonnes on a spot basis, the Gulf Times quotes the minister Mohammed al-Sada.
