Excelerate Energy LP, The Woodlands, Tex., reported the completion of the first ship-to-ship (STS) transfer of LNG at the Engro Elengy LNG terminal in Port Qasim, Pakistan.
Excelerate’s Exquisite floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) received 130,000 cu m of LNG from the Excelerate FSRU using the double-banked LNG transfer system. This transfer also marks the company’s 500th commercial STS operation using the double-banked cryogenic transfer system technology developed by Excelerate, the company said.
Commissioned in late March, the terminal initially employed the Exquisite for both cargo delivery and regasification. The terminal will continue to receive LNG via periodical STS transfers allowing for the continuous flow of gas into the local gas distribution system.
To date, Excelerate has successfully completed more than 785 STS operations, transferring more than 83 million cu m using its STS protocol.
