Qatargas recently delivered the inaugural liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo to China National Oil Corporation’s (CNOOC) Yuedong LNG terminal.

The cargo, delivered on board the Qatargas-chartered Q-Flex LNG vessel ‘Al Kharaitiyat,’ was used to safely commission CNOOC’s latest LNG terminal.

On the occasion, Qatargas chief executive officer Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa al-Thani said, “Qatargas is delighted to supply the commissioning cargo to CNOOC’s Yuedong Terminal. We are also pleased to see Qatari LNG playing an increasingly important role in meeting the growing demand for LNG in the People’s Republic of China.

“We believe that this delivery will further strengthen the relationship between Qatargas and CNOOC, and we look forward to continuing to supply reliable and clean energy to China and countries all over the world who seek to diversify their energy supplies,” he said.
Qatargas is the world’s largest LNG producing company with a production capacity of 42mn tonnes per year (MTPA).  Qatar, as the world’s leading LNG producer, anticipates that China will become one of the world’s largest gas markets.

The Yuedong LNG receiving terminal, which has an initial receiving capacity of 2mn tonnes per year, is owned and operated by CNOOC. The new terminal is the latest addition to CNOOC’s LNG receiving terminal portfolio, joining the existing ones in Shanghai, Guangdong, Fujian, Zhejiang and Hainan.
This is the fourth commissioning cargo from Qatargas to CNOOC’s LNG receiving terminals, bringing Qatargas’ total number of commissioning cargoes to LNG receiving terminals in the People’s Republic of China to seven.
