Qatargas, the world’s largest LNG producer, shipped its first Q-Max cargo of liquefied natural gas to Thailand under the sale and purchase agreement signed with the state-owned PTT. 

The cargo, transported aboard the  266,000- cbm Bu Samra carrier was delivered to the Map Ta Phut LNG terminal on August 5, Qatargas said.

This is the first Q-Max vessel to arrive Map Ta Phut terminal since the start-up of the terminal in 2011 when Qatargas delivered the first commissioning cargo to Thailand’s first and currently only operating LNG receiving terminal.

Since then, Qatargas has supplied PTT with approximately 9 million tons of LNG, delivering most of these cargoes via Q-Flex vessels.

Qatargas is delivering liquefied natural gas to the Map Ta Phut terminal under a 20-year deal signed in December 2012. Under the agreement, Qatargas is delivering two million tons per annum (mtpa) to PTT since 2015.
