Sakhalin Energy has announced that it has successfully offloaded the 1800th LNG cargo produced by the Sakhalin-2 LNG plant.
The cargo was loaded onto the Hyundai Aquapia LNG carrier at the Port of Prigorodnoye in Russia. The destination country for this cargo, which was purchased by KOGAS, is South Korea. It is also worth noting that this is the first time the LNG carrier in question had called at a Russian port.
Arthur Lubniewski, Sakhalin Energy’s Deputy Commercial Director, said: “Delivering the 1800th LNG cargo is a remarkable achievement for Sakhalin Energy, and we are doing our best to continue to be a world class LNG supplier, delivering hydrocarbons in safe and timely manner. In 2019, Sakhalin LNG accounted for more than 3% of global LNG exports, and delivered more than 8% of total LNG to LNG’s largest market Japan. Over the project’s history, Sakhalin LNG has been delivered to 47 destinations located in seven countries.”
According to the statement, LNG cargoes produced by Sakhalin Energy are both supplied FOB and are shipped by the company using the Grand series LNG carriers (Grand Elena, Grand Aniva and Grand Mereya), as well as Amur River and Ob River carriers used by the company under a long-term charter agreement.
