Another LNG cargo lands at Kuwait’s Al-Zour terminal

Kuwait Petroleum’s unit KIPIC said it has received another cargo at its new LNG import terminal in the Al-Zour area.

KIPIC said the 210,100-cbm Q-Flex LNG carrier Al Nuaman arrived on Sunday at the LNG import terminal located some 90 kilometers south of the capital Kuwait City.

The Nakilat-owned and Qatargras-chartered 315 meters long vessel previously loaded the cargo at the giant Ras Laffan complex.

Qatargas supplied this shipment and the first commissioning cargo which arrived at the new facility in Kuwait on July 12.

In total, this marks the fifth LNG cargo for the Al-Zour LNG import terminal, according to KIPIC.

Kuwait Petroleum formed KIPIC in 2016 to manage refinery, petrochemicals and LNG import operations in the giant Al-Zour complex.

A South Korean consortium consisting of Hyundai E&C, Hyundai Engineering and Kogas built the $3 billion 22 mtpa LNG terminal.

The terminal, one of the largest in the world, consists of two jetty heads, capable of simultaneous discharging, but it also has eight storage tanks.

Each tank has a net volume capacity of 225,000 cubic meters.
