Qatargas today, delivered its first cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to PetroChina’s first LNG receiving terminal at Rudong, Jiangsu Province. The cargo was delivered by the Q-Flex LNG carrier “Al-Rekayyat”.

Khalid Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Chief Executive Officer of Qatargas said: “This is a significant milestone for Qatargas. We are very pleased that LNG from Qatar will contribute towards guaranteeing the supply of natural gas to homes and industry in the People’s Republic of China. This achievement underpins Qatargas’ capability to supply LNG to customers around the globe safely and reliably.”
He further stated that:
“Under the guidance of His Excellency Dr. Mohammed Saleh Al Sada, Minister of Energy & Industry of the State of Qatar and Chairman of the Board of Directors at Qatargas; Qatari LNG has a key role to play in helping governments around the world improve the diversity of their energy supplies. The start-up of PetroChina’s first LNG terminal, located in a fast economic and populous region, is a significant milestone meeting the growing demand for energy in the People’s Republic of China and we at Qatargas are very proud to have played a contributing role.”

He added: “The Al-Rekayyat began her voyage from Ras Laffan Port on May 8 with approximately 145,000 cubic meter of LNG on-board and today she safely commenced discharging her cargo at Jiangsu LNG terminal, marking the first delivery of LNG from Qatargas to PetroChina. This delivery will further strengthen the relationship between both companies over the long-term.”

The LNG delivered to Jiangsu was executed under the agreement between Qatargas and PetroChina to deliver the first commissioning cargo to start-up the new LNG terminal at the Jiangsu LNG terminal. It marks the culmination of a tremendous amount of collaborative effort between the two companies, including the first ever ‘Full Mission Bridge Simulation*’ for a Q-Flex vessel held inside the People’s Republic of China at the Dalian Maritime University in March.

Qatargas is the world largest LNG producing company with a production capacity of 42 million tonnes per annum; The State of Qatar is now the world’s largest LNG producer and anticipates that the People’s Republic of China will become one of the world’s largest gas markets.
Qatargas has previously executed long-term contracts to supply a total of five million tonnes per annum of LNG to the People’s Republic of China.
