Published by Will Owen,
Qatargas Operating Co Ltd has delivered its first cargo of LNG on a Q-Flex LNG carrier to the Adriatic LNG receiving terminal in Italy.
The cargo, aboard the Qatargas-chartered LNG vessel Tembek, was loaded at Ras Laffan on 9 June 2020 and delivered to the Adriatic LNG terminal on 21 June 2020. It is the first cargo discharge operation by Qatargas to the Adriatic LNG terminal involving a Q-Flex LNG carrier.
The Adriatic LNG terminal is located 14 km offshore of Porto Levante in the northern Adriatic near Rovigo, Italy. It is the world’s first offshore gravity-based LNG regasification terminal.
The terminal is operated by ExxonMobil (70%), Qatar Terminal Ltd. (23%), a subsidiary of Qatar Petroleum, and Snam (7%). The terminal is connected to the Italian national distribution network through integrated pipelines.
?The terminal has a regasification capacity of 8 billion m3 of LNG per year (equal to half the total Italian LNG import capacity) and it currently supplies over 10% of the country’s natural gas requirements.
