Qatar’s RasGas loaded and delivered its 2000th liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo to South Korea’s Kogas on April 25.
The cargo was lifted by the 138,004-cbm LNG carrier SK Summit, the vessel that transported the first cargo of liquefied natural gas supplied from RasGas to South Korea in August 1999.
Speaking of the milestone cargo, RasGas CEO, Hamad Mubarak Al Muhannadi reminded that Kogas is the company’s foundation customers.
In October 1995, RasGas signed its first-ever long-term sale and purchase agreement with Kogas. The two companies have subsequently entered into two further long-term SPAs, and today RasGas delivers more than 9 million tons of LNG to Kogas on an annual basis.
