USA: First Commissioning Cargo Arrives at Golden Pass LNG Terminal


The Golden Pass LNG terminal today received its initial commissioning liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo aboard the Al Khuwair Q Flex ship at its regasification terminal located in Jefferson County, Texas, south of Port Arthur and northwest of Sabine Pass.

The Al Khuwair is the first LNG carrier to berth at the Golden Pass LNG terminal, adjacent to the Sabine-Neches Waterway. LNG is being transferred into tanks at the terminal for storage and ultimate regasification.

The Golden Pass LNG terminal includes two berths for unloading double-hulled LNG ships; five LNG storage tanks with capacity of 155,000 cubic meters each; vaporization equipment to warm the LNG to its natural gas state. The affiliated Golden Pass Pipeline facilities and equipment will transport the natural gas from the terminal to customers.

The Golden Pass LNG terminal will have the capacity to deliver the equivalent of 2 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas, when it reaches full operation. This represents enough natural gas to meet the average daily needs of about 10 million U.S. households.
