German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is expected to sign contracts for liquefied natural gas (LNG) during his visit to the UAE on Sunday, his deputy chancellor said, as Germany looks for new partners to replace Russian energy imports.

Scholz will visit Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the UAE at the weekend, and Germany’s energy needs are high on the agenda. 

“The gas offering is slowly broadening. The government is permanently in talks with many countries,” Economy Minister Robert Habeck said, pointing to his own trip to Qatar and the UAE in March.

Germany is acquiring liquefied natural gas terminals as part of its efforts to diversify away from Russian gas amid Western sanctions on Moscow.
