Qatargas, RasGas complete first co-loading of LNG

DOHA, August 21, 2017

Qatargas and RasGas have successfully completed the first co-loading of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) for split delivery, said a report.

This innovative method of multi-port delivery of a single LNG cargo from two separate suppliers represents a new level of operational flexibility and supply chain efficiency in the LNG industry, added the Gulf Times report.

Prior to this world-class development, the established practice was to load a single cargo for delivery to a single location, supplied by a single seller.

Qatargas and RasGas co-loaded the cargoes at the Ras Laffan terminal in Qatar on the Q-Flex LNG vessel — ‘Al Khuwair’, it said.

The cargoes were delivered to the Zeebrugge LNG Terminal in Belgium and the South Hook LNG Terminal in the UK respectively.

The milestone also underlines the two energy companies’ commitment to supporting innovative solutions that achieve greater efficiency, flexibility and optimisation of resources, while meeting customer needs, added the report.
