Sakhalin Energy Offloaded 1,800th Standard LNG Cargo

On March 25th, the 1,800th LNG cargo produced at the Sakhalin-2 LNG plant was loaded onto the Hyundai Aquapia LNG carrier. The destination country for this cargo, purchased by KOGAS company, is South Korea. 

According to Arthur Lubniewski, Sakhalin Energy’s Deputy Commercial Director, the plant currently ranks among the world’s top-10 LNG plants in terms of capacity. “Delivering the 1,800th LNG cargo is a remarkable achievement for Sakhalin Energy, and we are doing our best to continue to be a world-class LNG supplier, delivering hydrocarbons in safe and timely manner. In 2019, Sakhalin LNG accounted for more than 3% of global LNG exports, and delivered more than 8% of total LNG supplies to the largest LNG market Japan. Over the project’s history, Sakhalin LNG has been delivered to 47 destinations located in seven countries, " Mr Lubniewski added. 

Since launch of the plant, Sakhalin Energy has produced and shipped approximately 117 million metric tonnes of liquefied natural gas. Thanks to regular optimization and equipment adjustment, the LNG plant now produces more than 11 mtpa, which is significantly above its design capacity of 9.6 mtpa. 

Cargoes of LNG produced by Sakhalin Energy are supplied both on FOB terms as well as shipped by the company itself, using the Grand series LNG carriers (Grand Elena, Grand Aniva and Grand Mereya), as well as Amur River and Ob River carriers used by the company under a long-term charter agreement.
