Q-FLEX vessel sets delivery benchmark in Turkey
Published by Will Owen,
Qatargas Operating Co Ltd. has announced the safe delivery of the largest single cargo of LNG to the Marmara LNG terminal in Turkey.
The super-chilled LNG was delivered on board the Q-Flex vessel Al Sheehaniya, which enters the record books as the first ever Q-Flex vessel to call at the recently expanded Marmara LNG terminal.
Al Sheehaniya is a Q-Flex class LNG vessel with an overall cargo carrying capacity of 210 000 m3. Al Sheehaniya loaded a cargo of approximately 207 000 m3 of LNG at the Ras Laffan terminal in Qatar on 30 May 2019 before heading to the Marmara LNG Terminal in Turkey.?
Khalid bin Khalifa Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer, Qatargas said: “The recent expansion of Marmara LNG Terminal allows Qatargas to send the world’s largest LNG vessels to yet another LNG terminal in Turkey. With 14 LNG trains and a total annual production capacity of 77 million t, Qatargas is ideally positioned to meet increasing customer demand for reliable LNG, and capture the economies of scale afforded by Q-Flex and Q-Max LNG vessels.”
The Marmara LNG terminal is owned by BOTAS, the Turkish state-owned integrated gas company. The terminal was originally designed to accommodate conventional size vessels, and recently went through upgrades to accommodate both Q-Flex and Q-Max vessels.
