Qatar-based liquefied natural gas (LNG) company Qatargas recently delivered the inaugural cargo of LNG to China National Oil Corporation’s (CNOOC) Yuedong LNG terminal.
The cargo, delivered on board the Qatargas-chartered Q-Flex LNG vessel Al Kharaitiyat, was used to commission CNOOC’s newest LNG terminal.
“Qatargas is delighted to supply the commissioning cargo to CNOOC’s Yuedong Terminal. We are also pleased to see Qatari LNG playing an increasingly important role in meeting the growing demand for LNG in the People’s Republic of China,” Khalid Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Chief Executive Officer of Qatargas, said.
The Yuedong LNG receiving terminal, which has an initial receiving capacity of 2 MTPA, is owned and operated by CNOOC. The new terminal joins the company’s existing terminals in Shanghai, Guangdong, Fujian, Zhejiang and Hainan.
This is the fourth commissioning cargo from Qatargas to CNOOC’s LNG terminals, bringing Qatargas’ total number of inaugural cargoes to LNG terminals in China to seven.
