Dubai receives first LNG cargo from Q-Max vessel

Dubai: The Dubai Supply Authority (DUSUP) LNG Terminal at Jebel Ali Port received its first cargo to be unloaded from a Q-Max LNG carrier yesterday.

The vessel Lijmiliya (263,000 m3, built 2009) was partially loaded with 150,000 m3 of LNG in the Port of Ras Laffan, Qatar. It arrived on Monday morning alongside DUSUP’s 125,000-m3 Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU), Golar Freeze, which is moored at a jetty in the Jebel Ali Port for unloading its cargo.

Lijmiliya is one of the largest LNG vessels in the world, and is under charter to Qatargas. It is owned by Qatar Gas Transport Company (Nakilat) and operated by Shell International Trading and Shipping Company (STASCo). [29/10/14]
