Oman LNG loads 3000th cargo

State-owned producer Oman LNG said it had loaded the 3000th cargo of liquefied natural gas at its complex in Qalhat, Sur since 2000.

Oman LNG said on Monday that the milestone cargo is on its way to Japan.

According to the image above posted by the producer, the 2000-built LNG Jamal, which transports Oman LNG volumes for Japan’s Osaka Gas, loaded the shipment.

Oman LNG said it had produced 191.2 million tonnes of LNG at the complex since April 2000.

According to the producer, 22 countries in total received LNG supplies from the complex up to date.

The state-owned firm operates three LNG trains in Qalhat with a nameplate capacity of 10.4 million tonnes per year sourcing gas from the central Oman gas field complex.

Moreover, it mostly supplies LNG under long-term deals with Kogas, BP, Itochu, Osaka Gas, and Naturgy.

Oman’s LNG exports rose 8 percent in the first half of this year to 91 cargoes due to debottlenecking. The firm delivered in total 163 cargoes or 10.6 million tonnes of LNG last year.

The company’s complex now has a production capacity of around 11.4 million tonnes per year.

The government of Oman holds 51 percent in Oman LNG while energy giant Shell has a 30 percent stake. Other shareholders include TotalEnergies, Korea LNG, PTTEP, Mitsubishi, Mitsui, and Itochu.
