Suez Marks a Milestone at the Atlantic LNG Facility

Tuesday, November 14, 2006
Suez LNG announced that its liquefied natural gas (LNG) ship, Suez Matthew, had the honor of loading the 1000th cargo of LNG from the Atlantic LNG facility in Trinidad. This event marked the ship's 174th loading at Atlantic LNG, representing a total of 17.4% of all LNG loadings there and the most of any single vessel calling on this critical LNG export facility. The SUEZ MATTHEW also loaded the very first cargo at Atlantic LNG more than seven years ago in April 1999. Suez Matthew has become a critical means by which the New England region receives its natural gas. The ship, one of several in the SUEZ fleet, makes regular deliveries directly from Trinidad to SUEZ LNG NA's import facility in Everett, Massachusetts. The Everett Terminal, which is the first LNG import facility ever built in the United States, currently serves approximately 20 percent of the region's natural gas demand for home heating, industrial use, and electricity production. Thus far in 2006, the Everett Terminal has received more LNG shipments than any other U.S. LNG import terminal, and this particular cargo on Suez Matthew, which arrived in Everett on October 18, 2006, is the 734th cargo delivered to the terminal since its start-up in 1971.
