Qatargas sells the first LNG cargo to Pakistan to commission LNG terminal
Qatargas sold its first cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Pakistan State Oil Company Limited (PSO). The LNG cargo was sold on a free-on-board basis and loaded at Ras Laffan Port on to the LNG vessel Excelerate Exquiste on 21 March 2015, the company said in its press release.
The cargo was secured to commission the Excelerate Exquiste, which will become the Floating Storage and Regasification Unit, when it is moored in Port Qassim, Pakistan as part of the Elengy LNG terminal which is the first Pakistan LNG import terminal.
This is the first LNG agreement between Qatar and Pakistan and the first ever LNG import deal for any entity in Pakistan.
