Trinidad and Tobago’s Atlantic LNG marks milestone cargo
Trinidad and Tobago’s LNG production company Atlantic LNG has completed loading its 4500th cargo today at its Point Fortin facility.
On 8 April, Atlantic LNG loaded this milestone LNG cargo onto the vessel Cool Discoverer at the second jetty of its Point Fortin facility.
This is a four-train liquefaction facility with a total capacity of 15 million metric tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG. It also includes a port area with two jetties, an approach channel used by LNGCs to berth at the jetty, and a turning basin. Each jetty can accommodate an LNG carrier of approximately 171,000 cubic metres in size.
Atlantic CEO Ron Adams said this is a testimony to the crucial role the country continues to play in the global LNG business.
“It’s a big day for us, delivering 4500 cargoes is a significant milestone marking a long legacy of value creation for the people of Trinidad and Tobago.
“Our commitment to community, country, and the exciting opportunities we see for our business as global LNG demand rises is all part of the delivery of every cargo. We know just how important it is to play our part in the global energy transition.”
Atlantic LNG first started lifting cargoes back in April 1999. The cargoes from the Atlantic facility are delivered to multiple worldwide destinations; Europe, the U.S., South America, Asia, and the Caribbean.
The company is owned by BP, Shell, Chinese Investment Corporation (CIC) and Trinidad and Tobago’s NGC.
