Qatargas has delivered the first cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) on a Q-Flex vessel to the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), located offshore Bangladesh.
The cargo, aboard Qatargas-chartered ‘Al Thumama’, was loaded at Ras Laffan on September 4, and delivered to ‘Excellence’ and known as Moheshkali LNG Terminal (MLNG) on September 20.
This is the first commercial open water ship-to-ship transfer involving a Q-Flex vessel. MLNG is a project jointly developed by Excelerate Energy and the Bangladesh Oil, Gas and Mineral Corporation (Petrobangla) on a build, own and operate basis.
The FSRU ‘Excellence’ is under a 15-year charter deal to Petrobangla and carried the inaugural LNG cargo from Qatar in April 2018.
‘Al Thumama’ is a Q-Flex class LNG vessel with an overall cargo carrying capacity of 216,000 cubic metres.
The deliveries to Petrobangla are made under a long-term sale and purchase agreement signed in September 2017 between Qatargas and Petrobangla to supply up to 2.5mn tonnes of LNG per annum for 15 years.
