Qatargas delivers first LNG cargo to Thailand

DOHA, August 16, 2017

Qatargas recently delivered the first Q-Max cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) under a long-term sale agreement with PTT Public Company to Thailand.

The cargo arrived on board the Q-Max LNG vessel, Bu Samra, at Thailand’s Map Ta Phut LNG receiving terminal.

This is the first Q-Max vessel to arrive at Map Ta Phut terminal since the start-up of the terminal in 2011, when Qatargas delivered the first commissioning cargo to Thailand’s first LNG receiving terminal Map Ta Phut.

Since then, Qatargas has supplied PTT with approximately 9 million tons of LNG, delivering  most of these cargoes via Q-Flex vessels.

In December 2012, Qatargas 3 and PTT Company signed an SPA to deliver two million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG for a period of 20 years from 2015.  This agreement marked PTT’s first long-term LNG SPA and Qatargas’ first long-term agreement in South-East Asia.

Currently, Map Ta Phut LNG Receiving Terminal is the only LNG receiving terminal operating in Thailand, and it can receive both Q-Flex and Q-Max vessels. – TradeArabia News Service
