Doha-based liquefied natural gas company Qatargas has set another milestone as it successfully delivered the 3,000th LNG cargo to Japan.

The cargo was transported onboard Al Jasra, a conventional LNG vessel with a capacity of 135,000 cubic meters.

It was delivered to the Kawagoe LNG Receiving Terminal, owned and operated by JERA, a joint venture between Chubu Electric and Tokyo Electric.

Back in January 1997, the first-ever Qatari shipment was delivered to the abovementioned terminal in Japan.

“We are delighted to celebrate the 3000th LNG delivery to Japan. This significant milestone comes over two decades following the first delivery to our foundation customer in Japan,” Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, Minister of State for Energy Affairs, President & CEO of Qatar Petroleum, commented.

“Qatargas’ commitment to serving Japan’s energy needs has never been stronger. We are focused on boosting future cooperation with Japan,” Al-Kaabi, who is also Chairman of Qatargas Board of Directors, added.

“We celebrate the uninterrupted supply of this 3000th LNG cargo to Japan, which is a major milestone reflecting the relationship between Qatargas and our esteemed Japanese customers. This delivery demonstrates Qatargas’ commitment to continue providing Japan, and all of our customers around the globe, with a safe and reliable source of clean energy,” ​Khalid bin Khalifa Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer of Qatargas, said.

Qatargas has term contracts to supply LNG with many of the key Japanese buyers. Apart from these term contracts, Qatargas also delivers a significant amount of Japan’s spot LNG requirements.​​
