Qatargas Operating Company (Qatargas) has delivered the first cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) on a Q-Flex vessel to the FSRU Excellence serving at the Moheshkali LNG terminal, located offshore Bangladesh.

The cargo, aboard Qatargas-chartered Al Thumama capable of transporting 216,000 cubic meters, was loaded at Ras Laffan on September 4 and delivered to MLNG on September 20, 2019.

This is the first commercial open water ship-to-ship transfer involving a Q-Flex vessel, Qatar said in a statement.

MLNG is a project jointly developed by Excelerate Energy and the Bangladesh Oil, Gas and Mineral Corporation (Petrobangla) on a build, own and operate basis.

The FSRU Excellence is under a 15-year charter deal to Petrobangla and carried the inaugural LNG cargo from Qatar in April 2018.

The deliveries to Petrobangla are made under a long-term sale and purchase agreement (SPA) signed in September 2017 between Qatargas and Petrobangla to supply up to 2.5 million tons of LNG per annum for 15 years.
