Qatari liquefied natural gas (LNG) company Qatargas has set another milestone as it successfully delivered the 3,000th LNG cargo to Japan.

The cargo was transported onboard Al Jasra, a conventional LNG vessel with a capacity of 135,000 cubic meters.

The cargo was delivered to the Kawagoe LNG Receiving Terminal, owned and operated by JERA. The first ever Qatari shipment was delivered to Kawagoe LNG Receiving Terminal on 10th January 1997.

Commenting on this achievement, Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, Minister of State for Energy Affairs, President & CEO of Qatar Petroleum, and Chairman of Qatargas Board of Directors, said: "We are delighted to celebrate the 3000th LNG delivery to Japan. This significant milestone comes over two decades following the first delivery to our foundation customer in Japan. Qatar, as the largest LNG producer in the world, is committed to delivering LNG safely and reliably to our customers across the globe."

Al-Kaabi added: "Qatargas' commitment to serving Japan's energy needs has never been stronger. We are focused on boosting future cooperation with Japan, and building even stronger relations with our Japanese customers and friends."

Khalid bin Khalifa Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer of Qatargas, said: "Utilizing our flexible and reliable operations, we celebrate the uninterrupted supply of this 3000th LNG cargo to Japan, which is a major milestone reflecting the relationship between Qatargas and our esteemed Japanese customers. This delivery demonstrates Qatargas' commitment to continue providing Japan, and all of our customers around the globe, with a safe and reliable source of clean energy."

Qatargas has term contracts to supply LNG with many of the key Japanese buyers including JERA, Tohoku Electric, Kansai Electric, Chugoku Electric, Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Toho Gas and Shizuoka Gas. Apart from these term contracts, Qatargas also delivers a significant amount of Japan's spot LNG requirements.
