Trinidad and Tobago has achieved another significant milestone in its LNG business. The country’s 4000th LNG cargo was lifted successfully this weekend onto the Gemmata, an LNG tanker on its 15th voyage to the Atlantic facility in Point Fortin.

The vessel berthed at Atlantic’s Jetty #2 at 6:00 AM on 16 March, and finished loading by 3:30 AM on 17 March. To mark the historic occasion, an Atlantic delegation boarded the Gemmata and exchanged symbolic tokens with Captain Karol Koperek.

Atlantic CEO Dr. Philip Mshelbila said that instrumental to the 4000th cargo milestone was the expertise of Atlantic’s people and their deep commitment to safety and to furthering LNG’s contribution to the national economy of the country.

“This milestone achievement is a celebration for all Trinbagonians, not only Atlantic’s employees,” Mshelbila said. “It is a testimony that Trinidad and Tobago’s LNG continues to be competitive in markets across the globe, and it also speaks to Atlantic’s track record in safe liftings and safe, reliable operations. With 4000 cargoes since the first was lifted by this country, LNG continues to add significant value to the national economy and to the development of Trinidad and Tobago’s citizens.”

Trinidad and Tobago’s 4000th LNG cargo is the latest achievement in the country’s participation in the global LNG and energy business. The country is currently among the world’s top 10 LNG producing countries. Employees of LNG production company Atlantic have also lent their expertise to help with start-up and commissioning activities of other LNG facilities in Australia, Angola and Azerbaijan.
