Summit LNG terminal off the island of Moheshkhali in Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh received the first Yamal liquefied natural gas cargo recently.

Yamal LNG operator Novatek, said on Friday that the cargo was shipped to Bangladesh in accordance with the long-term offtake agreement wit Total.

The consignment was delivered along the westbound route via the Suez Canal with transshipment from the ice-class Arc7 LNG tanker Eduard Toll to a conventional type LNG tanker at the Belgian terminal located at Zeebrugge.

The LNG cargo was unloaded at the Summit LNG Terminal in Bangladesh in accordance with the buyers lifting and delivery schedule, Novatek said.

“LNG demand is constantly growing all over the world with new consumer countries appearing. Bangladesh started importing LNG just a year ago with the launch of the country’s first LNG terminal, and it has rapidly increased natural gas consumption as well as regasification capacities,” Lev Feodosyev, Novatek’s first deputy chairman said.
