The 148,000 cbm LNG tanker Arctic Lady is on its way to Dubai with a cargo loaded at Statoil’s Hammerfest facility on Melkoya island.
The 2006-built LNG carrier departed from the Hammerfest plant on January 15 and the vessel is expected to arrive at the Jebel Ali LNG import terminal on March 10, according to shipping data.
In 2010, Dubai Supply Authority (DUSUP) completed the construction of the LNG terminal in Jebel Ali port which allows the import of LNG via a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).
LNG tankers berth alongside the Explorer FSRU, which regasifies the LNG using seawater through a heat exchanger, and then flows the gas into the onshore pipeline network.
