Fluxys-operated Zeebrugge LNG terminal has booked its first cargo of liquefied natural gas for 2017.
According to the shipping data, the 162,000-cbm LNG carrier Clean Planet, owned by Dynagas, departed Qatar’s Ras Laffan liquefied natural gas complex on December 17 and set course for Belgium.
The vessel is scheduled to dock at the Zeebrugge LNG terminal on January 2, the data shows.
In November, Fluxys conducted first operational tests as part of the commissioning process of the second LNG jetty at its terminal.
Earlier this month, Qatari LNG producer RasGas delivered the first cargo at the second jetty, in view of commissioning the new facility which is expected to be fully operational by the end of this year.
New jetty will be able to accommodate LNG carriers with capacities ranging from 2,000-cbm to 217,000-cbm.
The addition of the new jetty will also allow two LNG carriers to be unloaded or loaded at the same time at the Zeebrugge terminal.
