Qatargas, the world’s largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) exporter, has delivered the first Q-Max cargo of LNG under a sale and purchase agreement signed with the state-owned PTT.
The cargo arrived on board the Q-Max LNG vessel, Bu Samra, on 5th August. Q-Max vessels can carry up to 266,000 cubic metres of LNG and are 80% larger than their conventional LNG vessel counterparts.
This is the first Q-Max vessel to arrive at Map Ta Phut terminal since the start-up of the terminal in 2011, when Qatargas delivered the first commissioning cargo to Thailand’s first LNG receiving terminal.
Since then, Qatargas has supplied PTT with approximately nine million tons of LNG, delivering most of these cargoes via Q-Flex vessels.
Qatargas is delivering LNG to the Map Ta Phut terminal under a 20-year deal signed in December 2012. Under the agreement, Qatargas is delivering two million tons per annum (mpta) to PTT since 2015.
All five of Chart’s 1000m3 capacity cryogenic storage tanks, otherwise known ‘Decinske Giants’, are now installed at Lithuania’s LNG reloading and bunkering station in readiness for scheduled commercial operation later in the year.
Air Products, a world leader in liquefied natural gas (LNG) technology and equipment, has won a contract to supply heat exchanger and liquefaction process equipment to the floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility to be located in the Indian Ocean offshore Mozambique, Africa.
