LOS ANGELES, Feb. 21--Qatargas and Shell announced the first cargo of LNG from their Qatargas 4 (QG4) Project is bound for India’s Hazira receiving terminal aboard the Q-Flex LNG carrier Al Ruwais, owned by Qatar Gas Transport Co.

QG4 produces 1.4 bsfcd of gas, delivering 7.8 million tonnes/year of LNG and 70,000 b/d of condensate and LPG. Qatargas’s seventh train, QG4, brings the firm’s total production capacity to a record 42 million tonnes/year of LNG.

Due to the increased production from QG4, Qatargas earlier this month announced it had become the world’s largest LNG producer (OGJ, Feb. 10).

“Qatargas cements its place...as the world’s premier LNG supplier,” said Peter Voser, chief executive officer of Royal Dutch Shell PLC on Feb. 9. “Cargoes from the QG4 project will enable new customers around the world to benefit from using cleaner-burning natural gas from Qatar.”

The QG4 project was constructed and is operated by Qatargas. The project’s shareholders are Qatar Petroleum with 70% interest and Shell with 30% interest.
