Excelerate performs first STS LNG transfer in Pakistan
Excelerate Energy said it has completed the first ship-to-ship transfer of LNG at the Engro Elengy terminal located in Port Qasim, Pakistan on July 17.
Excelerate’s floating storage and regasification unit, Exquisite, received 130,000 cubic meters of LNG from the FSRU Excelerate using the double-banked LNG transfer system, the company said in a statement.
This transfer also marks the company’s 500th commercial STS operation using the double-banked cryogenic transfer system technology developed by Excelerate.
Commissioned in late March of this year, the terminal initially employed the FSRU Exquisite for both cargo delivery and regasification purposes. The terminal will continue to receive LNG supply via periodical STS transfers allowing for the continuous flow of gas into the local gas distribution system.
