Adriatic LNG Terminal (ALNG) received its milestone 500th cargo, delivered by RasGas Company Limited’s (RasGas) LNG tanker, Al Marrouna, on February 21, 2017.
A celebratory event was held at the terminal to mark the occasion, with ALNG Managing Director, Suresh Jagadesan, boarding the Al Marrouna to meet with the marine team and vessel crew. The Adriatic LNG Terminal is located in the northern Adriatic Sea, approximately 14 kilometres offshore from Porto Viro, near Rovigo, Italy, and is the world's first offshore gravity-based liquefied natural gas regasification terminal.
With operations facilities based in Ras Laffan Industrial City, RasGas’ principal activities are to extract, process, liquefy, store and export LNG and its derivatives from Qatar’s North Field. RasGas, on behalf of the Project Owners, exports to countries across Asia, Europe and the Americas. It has a total LNG production capacity of approximately 37 million tonnes per annum.
