Qatargas hits 5000th LNG cargo milestone

World’s largest LNG producer Qatargas said it has reached a milestone with the 5000th cargo from the Common LNG Storage and Loading Asset in Ras Laffan Industrial City recently loaded on board the Q-Flex vessel Al Karaana at Ras Laffan port.

Operated by Qatargas, the Common Lean LNG storage and loading facilities were built to store and load the chilled gas produced from Qatargas’ seven production trains and RasGas Trains 6 and 7.

The LNG is loaded from berths 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 at Ras Laffan port and delivered to Qatargas’ and RasGas’ customers across the globe.

The Common LNG storage and Loading facilities include twelve LNG tanks, eight of which have a storage capacity of 140,000 cubic metres each and four with a capacity of 85,000 cubic meters each. The facility also recovers Boil-Off gas from the LNG tanks. The recovered gas is supplied to the LNG trains as fuel gas. Five LNG loading berths are also part of the facility.

In addition, the Common LNG storage and loading facilities also operate the jetty boil-off gas recovery units, which recover boil-off gas during LNG ship loading, compress it and send it back to the LNG ventures to be used as fuel gas.
