The first cargo vessel, carrying liquified gas for the LNG Terminal at Puthuvype from RasGas in Qatar, has arrived off the port, and is anchored until necessary dredging work is completed, reports Business Standard.

With the shipment, the Petronet LNG terminal, with an annual capacity of five million tonnes, is all set to commence operations soon. The vessel, carrying about one lakh cubic metre of LNG, is anchored about 20 km off Kochi, port sources informed the Business Standard. Dredging work is going on at the port and the ship would enter the harbour in another three days. 


The Kochi terminal will operate at just eight per cent of its capacity in the first year of operation as pipelines taking gas to customers in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu are not ready. The company plans to import 4-5 shiploads of LNG at the terminal in 2013-14.
