First Q-Flex LNG delivery to TRBA Salvador
RasGas said that the Q-Flex LNG carrier Al-Huwaila has arrived for the first time at the Bahia regasification terminal located in Baía de Todos os Santos, Salvador, in the state of Bahia on the eastern coast of Brazil.
The 217,000 cbm vessel fully loaded with a RasGas’ cargo is the largest to arrive at Petrobras’ third LNG terminal, the company informed in a statement.
The Bahia regasification terminal has a regasification capacity of 14 million m³/day of natural gas.
Rodrigo Vilanova, Petrobras’ Executive Manager for Gas & Power Marketing and Trading, said that receiving the fully loaded Q-Flex vessel increases the company’s capacity to receive larger LNG ships in Brazil.
RasGas’ fleet consists of 27 long-term chartered LNG vessels including 14 conventional ships, 12 Q-Flex and one Q-Max vessel.
