RasGas Company Limited (RasGas) has successfully delivered the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo under its new long-term LNG Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA) with CPC Corporation, Taiwan (CPC).

Commenting on the occasion, Hamad Rashid Al-Mohannadi, RasGas Managing Director, said in a company press release, “The delivery of this first cargo under the recently executed long term LNG SPA with CPC Corporation - Taiwan marks a new milestone in our existing and strong relationship with them, one in which we see a great future ahead.”


LNG in focus

gasworld magazines

The LNG market, especially from a distributive perspective, offers increasing synergies and opportunities for the industrial gas and equipment community.

This synergy has been highlighted in recent weeks at both the gasworld Middle East Industrial Gas Conference 2011 and the 34th AIIGMA Seminar, both held in Dubai. In addition to the growing opportunities in LNG distribution, the small-scale LNG market presents a number of growth prospects for the gas and equipment community – and gasworld magazine’s May (2012) issue will be exploring this enterprising market.
