SEOUL Feb 10 State-run Korea Gas Corp (KOGAS)
, the world's second-largest single buyer of
liquefied natural gas (LNG), is interested in Iranian and U.S.
natural gas as LNG imports from the two countries are seen
possible without destination restrictions, its chief executive
said on Friday.
"When new suppliers enter, they cannot request destination
restrictions ... we can secure supplies that don't carry
destination restrictions," Lee Seung-hoon, chief executive and
president of KOGAS, said at a forum in Seoul.
Lee also said the company could secure U.S. shale gas if it
participates in new liquefaction facility projects under a U.S.
"U.S. trade pressure is likely to increase, but U.S. gas
investments can work as a tool against trade pressue," he said.
