SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Jovo Group is expected to receive its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo on 21-26 December into the company’s LNG transfer station at Dongguan in South China’s Guangdong province, a company source said on Thursday.
The shipment, which carries about 4,000 tonnes of LNG, has sailed out from PetroChina’s Dalian terminal in Liaoning province, northeast China, on 18 December, the source said.
The cargo will be distributed by a Jovo subsidiary via a truck after its arrival at the 1m tonne/year transfer station, the source added.
Jovo has entered into a supply agreement with PetroChina on receiving Qatari LNG volumes from Dalian terminal via small LNG tank vessels, a terminal source said.
Dalian terminal is able to load LNG volumes varying from 10,000 cubic metres (cbm) to 350,000cbm onto tank ships from storage tanks at the terminal, the first of its kind in China, the source added.
