Qatargas Delivers Biggest LNG Cargo to Turkey

Qatargas June 23 said it has delivered the largest single cargo of LNG to the Marmara LNG terminal in Turkey. 

The cargo was delivered on board the Q-Flex vessel Al Sheehaniya, which became the first ever Q-Flex vessel to call at the recently expanded Marmara LNG terminal, Qatargas said.

The Marmara terminal is owned by Turkish state Botas and was originally designed to accommodate conventional size vessels, and recently went through upgrades to accommodate both Q-Flex and Q-Max vessels. 

Al Sheehaniya is a Q-Flex class LNG vessel with an overall cargo carrying capacity of 210,000 m³. It loaded a cargo of about 207,000 m3 of LNG at the Ras Laffan terminal in Qatar May 30 before heading to Turkey.‚Äč
