RasGas delivers first LNG cargo to Italy’s Toscana FSRU

RasGas Co. Ltd. delivered its first LNG cargo on Aug. 23 via the Al Thakhira LNG tanker to the Toscana floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) offshore Italy.

International energy trading company DufEnergy Trading SA, Lugano, Switzerland, received the cargo. “Receiving this cargo at the FSRU Toscana regasification terminal is an important milestone, as LNG is a key source of supply to the Italian natural gas market,” said Jean-Christian Heintz, head of LNG at DufEnergy.

Located 22 km off the Italian coast between Livorno and Pisa, FSRU Toscana is permanently anchored to the seabed through a mooring system, with a single point of rotation at the bow.

Qatar’s RasGas, a Qatari joint stock company established in 2001 by Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil RasGas Inc., has an integrated shipping fleet consisting of 27 long-term chartered LNG vessels.
