Qatargas takes delivery of ‘Al Khattiya LNG carrier


Qatargas has announced that another of the world’s largest and most advanced Q-Flex LNG carriers was delivered to Nakilat recently and chartered on long-term contract to Qatar Liquefied Gas Company Limited (4), known as QG4.

The Nakilat-owned Q-Flex LNG Carrier ‘Al Khattiya’ (210,000 CBM) will be used to ship LNG produced by QG4, to markets primarily in North America.

The Q-Flex and the even larger Q-Max are a new generation of LNG mega-ships. The Q-Max has 80% more capacity than conventional LNG carriers, with around 40% lower energy requirements due to the economies of scale created by their size and the efficiency of the engines.

Q-Max LNG carriers are unique and purpose built for Nakilat and allow for more efficient transport of Qatar’s natural gas to markets throughout the world.
