Qatargas Operating Company Ltd has delivered the first Q-Flex cargo of LNG to the Summit LNG floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) located offshore Bangladesh.

The cargo, aboard Qatargas-chartered Al Safliya, was loaded at Ras Laffan Port on 27 December 2019 and delivered to the FSRU on 14 January 2020.

This is the first commercial open water ship-to-ship transfer involving a Q-Flex vessel delivering to Petrobangla at their Summit LNG terminal (SLNG). SLNG is a project jointly developed by Excelerate Energy and the Bangladesh Oil, Gas & Mineral Corporation (Petrobangla) on a build, own and operate basis. The FSRU, Summit LNG, is under a 15-year charter deal to Petrobangla and carried the inaugural LNG cargo from Qatar in April 2018.

Al Safliya is a Q-Flex class LNG vessel with an overall cargo capacity of 210 000 m3.

The deliveries to Petrobangla are made under a long-term sale and purchase agreement (SPA) signed in September 2017 between Qatargas and Petrobangla to supply up to 2.5 million tpy of LNG for 15 years.
