Qatargas Operating Co. Ltd has sold the first cargo of LNG to Jordan, onboard the FSRU Golar Eskimo, at Ras Laffan Port.
The cargo, which was sold FOB to Shell, arrived in Aqaba, Jordan, on 25 May, where it will be permanently moored on the Red Sea coast.
The recent entrance of Jordan into the LNG industry represents an important milestone for the country’s energy security and an increasing significance for the Middle East as an LNG market. The sale of this first cargo to Jordan further demonstrates Qatargas’ commitment to expand its reliable supply of a clean, safe and efficient source of energy to more countries.
