Texas-based Excelerate Energy on Friday conducted the 100th ship-to-ship (STS) transfer of LNG at the Engro Elengy terminal (EETL) in Pakistan’s Port Qasim. 

With the 100th STS transfer, Excelerate’s floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) Exquisite has transferred more than 14 million cubic meters of LNG at the terminal and discharged over 320 million mmBtu of natural gas into the Sui Southern Gas Company natural gas pipeline system.

During July, the FSRU Exquisite received the 100th cargo of liquefied natural gas imported into Pakistan.

Situated in a channel of the Indus River east of Karachi, it is Pakistan’s first LNG import terminal and was built to alleviate energy shortages in the country.

Since its commissioning in March of 2015, EETL has been able to reduce the power deficit of the country by around 20 percent.
