PetroVietnam Gas: Thi Vai terminal receives second LNG cargo

PetroVietnam Gas, a unit of state-owned PetroVietnam, has received the second liquefied natural gas cargo at its Thi Vai LNG import terminal, the country’s first such facility.

The 145,700-cbm LNG carrier, Al Jassasiya, delivered on Thursday about 70,000 tons of LNG from Qatar’s giant LNG complex in Ras Laffan to the Thi Vai LNG terminal, PetroVietnam Gas said in a statement.

This shipment is the first for the Thi Vai LNG terminal this year and the first that will be used for power production.

PetroVietnam Gas recently signed a deal to supply 70,000 tons of LNG to Vietnam’s power utility EVN.

The firm said that the LNG volumes will be supplied to the Phu My 3 thermal power plant during April-May, making up for about 500 million kWh to the power system.

Prior to this, PetroVietnam Gas signed a deal with QatarEnergy LNG, previously known as Qatargas, to buy 70,000 tons of LNG for delivery on April 12-13.

PetroVietnam Gas officially launched its Thi Vai LNG terminal in the coastal area southeast of Ho Chi Minh City on October 29 after nearly 4 years of construction and commissioning.

In July 2023, LNG giant Shell delivered the commissioning LNG cargo to the terminal from Indonesia’s Bontang LNG plant.

PetroVietnam Gas also recently started supplying LNG via trucks from its Thi Vai LNG import terminal to industrial customers.

The Thi Vai LNG import facility consists of one 180,000-cbm LNG tank, a jetty, and regas area.

The terminal has a capacity of 1 mtpa in its first phase, but PetroVietnam Gas plans to boost the capacity to 3 mtpa in the next stage.
