With close and professional coordination between PV GAS, relevant units and authorities, the process of receiving LNG ships took place safely, effectively and according to the set schedule. The Point Fortin ship was picked up at buoy '0' at 06:00 a.m. on 13 May 2024, then proceeded to dock, connect and pump cargo at 3:56 p.m. on the same day. The pumping operation was completed at 08:00 a.m. on 14 May 2024, ensuring absolute safety for people, property, and the environment.

The Point Fortin ship carrying more than 60 000 t of LNG departing from Bontang port (Indonesia) has docked at Cai Mep port, Ba Ria – Vung Tau province. This shipment was imported by PV GAS from the world's leading LNG supplier – TotalEnergies Gas & Power Asia Private Limited (TEGPA), with the purpose of serving the needs of electricity production and industrial production, ensuring ensure national energy security when entering the 2024 dry season.
