Q-Flex Vessel Sets Delivery Benchmark in Turkey

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/23/2019, Location: Europe

Qatargas Operating Company Limited (Qatargas) announced the safe delivery of the largest single cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the Marmara LNG Terminal in Turkey. The super-chilled LNG was delivered on board the Q-Flex vessel 'Al Sheehaniya', which enters the record books as the first ever Q-Flex vessel to call at the recently expanded Marmara LNG Terminal.

Khalid bin Khalifa Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer, Qatargas said: “The recent expansion of Marmara LNG Terminal allows Qatargas to send the world's largest LNG vessels to yet another LNG terminal in Turkey. With 14 LNG trains and a total annual production capacity of 77 million tonnes, Qatargas is ideally positioned to meet increasing customer demand for reliable LNG, and capture the economies of scale afforded by Q-Flex and Q-Max LNG vessels."

The Marmara LNG terminal is owned by BOTAS, the Turkish state-owned integrated gas company. The terminal was originally designed to accommodate conventional size vessels, and recently went through upgrades to accommodate both Q-Flex and Q-Max vessels.

Al Sheehaniya is a Q-Flex class LNG vessel with an overall cargo carrying capacity of 210,000 m3. Al Sheehaniya loaded a cargo of ~207,000 m3 of LNG at the Ras Laffan terminal in Qatar on 30 May 2019 before heading to the Marmara LNG Terminal in Turkey.?
