Qatargas delivers cargo to Hainan LNG terminal

Qatargas, the world’s largest LNG producer, recently delivered the first cargo of LNG to China National Oil Corporation’s (CNOOC) Hainan LNG terminal, located in the Hainan province.

The cargo arrived aboard of a Q-Max class LNG vessel Rasheeda, and it will be used to commission the new LNG terminal which CNOOC owns and will be operating soon.

Qatargas and CNOOC have an existing sales and purchase agreement signed in 2008 for the supply of a total of 2 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of LNG. The first delivery of LNG from Qatar to China with CNOOC was made in October 2009.

The Hainan LNG terminal, located in China’s Hainan province, will have a first phase receiving capacity of 3 Mtpa adding to CNOOC’s operating LNG terminals located in Shanghai Municipality, and the provinces of Guangdong, Fujian and Zhejiang thus maintaining its position as China’s largest LNG importer.

This is the third time Qatargas has provided a commissioning cargo for one of CNOOC’s LNG receiving terminals and represents the sixth LNG receiving terminal overall in China to use LNG supplied by Qatargas for commissioning activities.
