May 2013, Vol. 240, No. 5

Qatargas recently sent its initial cargo of LNG to Singapore. The cargo was delivered aboard the Q-Max LNG carrier UMM SLAL to Singapore LNG Corp. Pte Ltd’s (SLNG) first LNG-receiving terminal at Jurong Island.

The vessel left Ras Laffan Port on March 17 with 200,000 cubic meters of LNG and on March 27 berthed and commenced discharging cargo at Jurong. The terminal is the second in Southeast Asia to procure commissioning cargo from Qatargas. In June 2011, Qatargas delivered a commissioning cargo to Thailand’s Map Ta Phut LNG Terminal.
