ABS has congratulated Cheniere Energy Inc. on shipping its first LNG commissioning cargo from the Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Louisiana, US. The cargo was carried onboard the ABS-classed carrier, Asia Vision, which was built by Samsung Heavy Industries and utilises four Mark III Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) containment tanks, and has a capacity 160 000 m3.
Christopher J. Wiernicki – the Chairman, President and CEO of ABS – said: “The first export shipment of LNG from Sabine Pass is a historic moment for the entire North American energy sector.
“Since the shale gas boom began, ABS has been working closely with members and clients to assist them in taking full advantage of the many new opportunities. From the potential to carry export cargo to gas-fuelled vessels, our team of gas specialists understands the unique technical needs of this growing market.”
Patrick Janssens, the ABS Vice President for Gas Solutions, said: “Today’s energy landscape requires owners and operators to leverage new technology and prepare for expanding regulatory requirements.
