Liquefied natural gas tanker Al Oraiq, chartered by Doha-based LNG firm Qatargas, carried the company’s inaugural LNG cargo to Pavilion Gas in Singapore.
The Q-Flex vessel delivered the LNG shipment to the Singapore LNG Receiving Terminal on Jurong Island.
“Qatargas is proud to supply the first cargo of Qatari LNG to Pavilion Gas in the Republic of Singapore. We have great confidence in Pavilion Gas and the Singaporean market, and we look forward to building an even stronger relationship with them in the years ahead,” Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, President & CEO of Qatar Petroleum, and Chairman of the Qatargas Board of Directors, said.
The LNG cargo is the first Qatargas delivery to be regasified and sold into Singapore’s domestic market by Pavilion Gas.
Qatargas delivered the commissioning cargo to the Singapore LNG Receiving Terminal in 2013. Since then, Qatargas has regularly supplied LNG deliveries to various market participants in Singapore.
