Swiss trading company Gunvor and Spanish LNG operator Gas Natural Fenosa submitted the lowest bids in a tender to supply Pakistan with four liquefied natural gas cargoes in January.
State-run Pakistan LNG launched the tender in September with four delivery windows across January.
The cargoes will be delivered to BW Group’s FSRU BW Integrity that will serve as Pakistan’s second LNG terminal at Port Qasim. The vessel is employed by PGP consortium, a subsidiary of Pakistan GasPort consortium.
However, the LNG terminal project has been delayed for months as the connecting pipeline has still not been completed.
According to the marine data provider, VesselsValue, FSRU BW Integrity is currently moored offshore Port Qasim.
