Qatargas

Qatargas has delivered its first ever cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Singapore.  The cargo was delivered on board the Q-Max LNG carrier “UMM SLAL” to Singapore LNG Corporation Pte Ltd’s (SLNG) first LNG receiving terminal at Jurong Island.

Khalid Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Qatargas CEO said: “Qatari LNG continues to have a key role to play in helping countries around the world improve the diversity of their energy supplies. We are pleased with this development which will help to meet the growing demand for energy in Singapore and help us build our relationship with a new customer.”

“Under the guidance of His Excellency Dr. Mohammed Saleh Al Sada, Minister of Energy & Industry of the State of Qatar and Chairman of the Board of Directors at Qatargas, Qatari LNG has a key role to play in helping governments around the world improve the diversity of their energy supplies. The start-up of SLNG’s first LNG terminal, located in the heart of South East Asia, is a significant milestone meeting the growing demand for energy in Singapore and we at Qatargas are very proud to have played a contributing role,” he added.

UMM SLAL delivers first cargo of LNG to Singapore

The UMM SLAL began her voyage from Ras Laffan Port on March 17 with approximately 200,000 cubic meters of LNG onboard and arrived at Jurong Island LNG terminal on March 27.

The Singapore LNG Terminal is the second LNG terminal in South East Asia to procure commissioning cargo from Qatargas.  In June 2011, Qatargas delivered a commissioning cargo to Thailand’s Map Ta Phut LNG Terminal.
