Qatargas delivers commissioning cargo to new Chinese LNG Terminal
Qatargas, the World’s Premier LNG Company, recently delivered the inaugural cargo of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to China National Oil Corporation’s (CNOOC) Yuedong LNG terminal. The LNG cargo, delivered on board the Qatargas-chartered Q-Flex LNG vessel ‘Al Kharaitiyat’, was used to safely commission CNOOC’s latest LNG terminal.
Qatargas is the world’s largest LNG producing company with a production capacity of 42 million tonnes per annum (MTPA). The State of Qatar, as the world’s leading LNG producer, anticipates that China will become one of the world’s largest gas markets.
The Yuedong LNG receiving terminal, which has an initial receiving capacity of 2 MTPA, is owned and operated by CNOOC. The new terminal is the latest addition to CNOOC’s LNG receiving terminal portfolio, joining existing terminals in Shanghai, Guangdong, Fujian, Zhejiang and Hainan. This is the fourth commissioning cargo from Qatargas to CNOOC’s LNG receiving terminals, bringing Qatargas’ total number of commissioning cargoes to LNG receiving terminals in the People’s Republic of China to seven.
