Qatar, the world’s largest LNG exporter, dispatched a cargo of the chilled gas from Ras Laffan port to India on Monday.
The 145,700 cbm Maran Gas Asclepius is expected to arrive at Petronet’s Dahej LNG terminal on August 28, according to shipping data.
Petronet buys 7.5 million tonnes of LNG per year from RasGas under a 25-year contract the two companies signed in 1999.
However, India’s largest LNG importer has this year deferred taking deliveries of several cargoes from Qatar as it is seeking a lower price for the chilled gas it imports.
