Qatargas made its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo delivery (LNG) on a Q-Flex vessel to the Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) named ‘Excellence’ and known as Moheshkali LNG Terminal (MLNG), located offshore Bangladesh.

According to a press release from the Qatargas Operating Company, the cargo, aboard Qatargas-chartered ‘Al Thumama’, was loaded at Ras Laffan on 4th September and delivered to MLNG on 20th September 2019.  

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, according to local media repors.

‘Al Thumama’ is a Q-Flex class LNG vessel with an overall cargo carrying capacity of 216,000 cubic meters.

The deliveries to Petrobangla are made under a long-term Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA) signed in September 2017 between Qatargas and Petrobangla to supply up to 2.5 Million tons of LNG per annum for 15 years.
