State firm ships liquefied natural gas to New Brunswick terminal

State-controlled Qatargas delivered its first shipment of five billion cubic feet of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Canada.

The firm says the LNG was delivered to the Canaport LNG terminal in New Brunswick on the east coast.

Qatargas started production at its 7.8-million-tonne-a-year (t/y) train 4 in May. This was followed by the 7.8 million-t/y train 5 in September.

The company’s Qatargas 3 and 4 trains, also 7.8 million t/y, are scheduled to begin in 2010. This will take the company’s overall production to 42 million t/y.

In November, Qatargas signed a deal to supply two Chinese state-run energy firms with five million t/y of LNG.

Qatargas will provide 3 million t/y of LNG to China National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC) from 2013 and boost sales to Petrochina, a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), by 2 million t/y in the first half of the next decade.
