Qatargas delivers the first LNG cargo under its long term agreement with Pakistan State Oil Company
Qatargas delivered its first Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) cargo under a new long term supply agreement with Pakistan State Oil Company (PSO) to Port Qasim, Pakistan. The cargo was loaded onto Al Gattara, a chartered Qatargas LNG Vessel, which is owned and operated by Nakilat. The Vessel left Ras Laffan, Qatar on 26 February 2016 to mark the inaugural Q-Flex delivery to Pakistan. With the addition of this milestone delivery to Port Qasim, the Qatargas chartered Q-Flex fleet achieved compatibility with 60 LNG terminals globally while the larger Q-Max vessels are presently compatible with 32 LNG terminals globally.
In April 2015, Qatargas delivered the first commissioning cargo to PSO onboard the LNG vessel Excelerate Exquisite, a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) vessel, which is currently moored at the Engro LNG terminal in Port Qasim, and is Pakistan’s first LNG import terminal.
