Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On July 29, 2021, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tellurian Inc. (“Tellurian” or the “Company”), Driftwood LNG LLC (“Driftwood LNG”), entered into two LNG sale and purchase agreements with Shell NA LNG LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Shell”). The price for liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) sold under each LNG sale and purchase agreement will be based on the Platts Japan Korea Marker (“JKM”) index price (the “JKM SPA”) or the InterContinental Exchange Dutch Natural Gas Title Transfer Facility (“TTF”) futures contract price (the “TTF SPA,” and together with the JKM SPA, the “SPAs”), in each case minus a transportation netback. Subject to certain adjustments set forth in the applicable SPA, Shell’s annual contract quantity of LNG (“ACQ”) will be 52,170,000 million British thermal units (“MMBtu”) under the JKM SPA and 104,340,000 MMBtu under the TTF SPA. The term of each SPA is ten years from the date of first commercial delivery in respect of Plant 1 or Plant 2 of the Driftwood terminal.


Conditions to each party’s obligation to consummate the transactions contemplated by each SPA include (i) Driftwood LNG having issued to Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals, Inc. an unconditional full notice to proceed for the construction of Plant 1 and Plant 2 of the Driftwood terminal and (ii) Driftwood LNG or an affiliate thereof having secured the necessary financing arrangements to construct such plants and having achieved financial close under such arrangements.


Each SPA contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of Driftwood LNG and Shell. Driftwood LNG, on the one hand, and Shell, on the other hand, have agreed to indemnify each other against certain losses resulting from breaches of their respective representations, warranties and covenants, subject to certain limits set forth in each SPA. Each SPA also includes provisions regarding ACQ adjustments, suspension rights, failure to take LNG, failure to deliver LNG, inspection rights, force majeure, cool-downs, gas-ups, title and risk of loss transfers, invoicing and payment, berthing, loading and demurrage, testing and measurement standards, confidentiality, termination rights and other rights and requirements.


The foregoing description of the JKM SPA and TTF SPA does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the JKM SPA and TTF SPA, which agreements are attached as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, to this report and incorporated herein by reference.


The parties have separately agreed to provide a mechanism for the use of greenhouse gas offsets in connection with deliveries of LNG cargoes from the Driftwood terminal under the SPAs.


Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.


On July 29, 2021, the Company issued a press release regarding the SPAs. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.


The information set forth in this Item 7.01, including the information set forth in Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
