Fluxys-operated Zeebrugge LNG terminal in Belgium is set to receive a fresh cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Qatar.

The Al Oraiq LNG tanker, with a capacity of 210,100-cbm, is set to arrive at Zeebrugge on September 21, its AIS data shows.

The vessel left Qatar’s LNG export complex in Ras Laffan on Thursday, the data shows.

Back in October 2015, the Q-Flex carrier, managed by K Line LNG Shipping, had suffered damage to the vessels’ bow after a crash with Dutch freighter Flinterstar eight kilometres off the Belgian coast, near the Zeebrugge LNG terminal.

The Marshall Islands-flag Al Oraiq is jointly owned by Nakilat, K Line, NYK and MOL.
