On 8th August Qatargas delivered the first cargo of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to China National Oil Corporation’s (CNOOC) Hainan LNG terminal located in the Hainan province. The cargo arrived aboard of a Q-Max class LNG vessel Rasheeda and it will be used to commission the new LNG terminal which CNOOC owns and will be operating soon.
Khalid Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Qatargas Chief Executive Officer said,“This is an important milestone for Qatargas. We are very pleased that LNG from Qatar continues to contribute towards meeting the growing demand for energy in the People’s Republic of China. This achievement highlights Qatargas’ capability to supply LNG to customers around the globe safely and reliably. This delivery will further strengthen the relationship between both companies over the long-term.”
