Today, for the first time ever, one of the world’s largest vessels, a Q-Max, transferred its entire load at Enagás’ regasification plant in Barcelona. This is the first time one of the company's terminals has fully offloaded a methane tanker of this type, which can carry up to 266,000 m3 of liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The Port Authority's Chairman, Enagás' General Manager of Infrastructures and other company directors, along with the Chairman of Shell España and various customers attended the offloading..

The 345-metre long vessel Aamira, from Qatar, has five tanks, a beam of 52 metres and a draught of 12 metres. Her LNG storage capacity for transport is equivalent to the volume of over 100 Olympic-size swimming pools.
