Doha-based Qatargas has set a benchmark with the delivery of the largest single cargo of LNG to the Marmara LNG Terminal in Turkey.

The super-chilled LNG was delivered on board the Q-Flex LNG tanker Al Sheehaniya, which enters the record books as the first ever Q-Flex vessel to call at the recently expanded terminal.

Featuring a 210,000 cbm capacity, the Sheehaniya loaded a cargo of ~207,000 cbm of LNG at the Ras Laffan terminal in Qatar on May 30, 2019, before heading to Turkey.​

“The recent expansion of Marmara LNG Terminal allows Qatargas to send the world’s largest LNG vessels to yet another LNG terminal in Turkey. With 14 LNG trains and a total annual production capacity of 77 million tonnes, Qatargas is ideally positioned to meet increasing customer demand for reliable LNG, and capture the economies of scale afforded by Q-Flex and Q-Max LNG vessels,” Khalid bin Khalifa Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer, Qatargas said.

The Marmara LNG terminal was originally designed to accommodate conventional size vessels, and recently went through upgrades to accommodate both Q-Flex and Q-Max vessels.
