PetroChina gets first big Qatar LNG cargo
Doha, November 19, 2011
Qatar delivered its first super tanker cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to PetroChina on Saturday under a long-term agreement, state-run Qatargas said.
'Delivered onboard the Q-Max vessel, Bu Samra, this is the first Qatari LNG Q-Max cargo delivered to PetroChina's recently commissioned LNG receiving terminal at Rudong,' Qatargas said in a statement.
The delivery was made under a 2008 agreement for Qatar, the world's top LNG exporter, to supply 3 million tonnes per year to PetroChina over 25 years, it said.
