Qatargas sells first LNG cargo to Jordan

Qatargas, the world’s largest LNG producer, said it has sold the first cargo of the chilled gas to Jordan on-board the Golar Eskimo FSRU, at Ras Laffan Port on 12th May.

The conventional-sized cargo, which was sold free-on-board (FOB) to Royal Dutch Shell, arrived in Aqba, Jordan on 25th May, where it will be permanently moored on the Red Sea coastline.

The most recent entrance of Jordan into the LNG industry represents an important milestone for the Kingdom’s energy security and an increasing significance for the Middle East as an LNG market, Qatargas said in a statement.

One of the key strengths of Qatargas has been the development of a center for excellence in supporting the commissioning of both land-based LNG receiving terminals and FSRUs, according to the statement.

To date the company has supported the commissioning of 15 LNG terminals across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and the Far East.
