LONDON, Aug. 11 -- ExxonMobil Corp. has delivered its first LNG cargo using the Dukhan LNG carrier to the 8 billion cu m/year Adriatic LNG regasification terminal 10 miles off Porto Levante, Italy. Adriatic LNG is the world’s first offshore gravity-based structure LNG regasification terminal.

Adriatic LNG is designed around a large concrete structure in 95 ft of water, which houses two LNG storage tanks, a regasification plant, and facilities for mooring and unloading LNG vessels.

ExxonMobil has invested in proprietary technology in this major facility that will meet 10% of Italy’s natural gas requirements when it reaches full operational capacity later this year. The terminal will be able to deliver 775 MMcfd of natural gas.

Neil Duffin, president of ExxonMobil Development Co., said, “Through advanced technologies, project execution expertise, and economies of scale, ExxonMobil is extending its ability to bring global LNG supplies to Italy and elsewhere around the world.”

The project is jointly owned by Qatar Terminal Ltd., a Qatar Petroleum wholly owned subsidiary, with a 45% stake, ExxonMobil Italiana Gas holds 45%, and Edison SPA holds 10%.
