The cargo was loaded at the Ras Laffan terminal in Qatar on 22 June 2019, and arrived on board the Q-Max vessel Al Dafna on 22 July 2019.
According to the statement, the delivery also celebrates another multi-terminal delivery for Qatargas, bringing the total number of multi-port deliveries undertaken by the company this year to eight deliveries. This operation saw the first LNG parcel discharged in Zeebrugge and a second parcel at the South Hook LNG terminal in the UK.
Khalid bin Khalifa Al Thani, Qatargas Chief Executive Officer, said: “At Qatargas, we are very much focused on further developing the concept of multi-port deliveries of our LNG cargoes and offer it to our global portfolio of customers. This will provide our customers with flexibility and reliability to help them meet their demand for clean burning natural gas while enhancing flexibility of supply.”
Pascal De Buck, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of gas infrastructure group Fluxys, owner and operator of the Zeebrugge LNG terminal, added: “We are particularly pleased at Fluxys with this new milestone in our long-standing cooperation with Qatargas at the Zeebrugge LNG terminal. The Q-Max delivery demonstrates the versatility we offer our customers, with LNG carriers of all types and sizes able to dock at the facility, ample pipe gas take away capacity for delivery throughout Northwestern Europe and a range of options for downstream small-scale LNG distribution.”
