Under the 22-year SPA, which ends in 2040, Qatargas will supply LNG from the Qatargas 2 project, a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum, ExxonMobil and Total, to different receiving terminals across China, with the first cargo to be delivered to China later this month.
“This agreement underscores Qatar’s trusted capability in ensuring energy security to countries around the world, particularly in Asia, as well as its unique position as the world’s largest LNG producer, supplying safely and reliably across the globe,” Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum, and Chairman of the Qatargas Board of Directors, said.
“With China expected to become one of the world’s largest gas markets, this SPA will further strengthen the existing relationship between Qatargas and PetroChina over the long-term,” Khalid Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Qatargas Chief Executive Officer, said.
The SPA allows flexibility in delivering LNG to various receiving terminals across China, including the Dalian, Jiangsu, Tangshan and Shenzhen LNG receiving terminals, utilising Qatargas’ fleet of 70 conventional, Q-Flex and Q-Max LNG vessels.(marine crane manufacturer;offshore crane manufacturer)
To ensure a good penetration and good filling, the grabs have high dead weight. The spaces between the shells are relative small to minimise the risk of material loss.
The grab hydraulic cylinders are fitted with replaceable piston rod protections and are hydraulically cushioned. Wide opening ranges guarantee a good penetration and release behavior.
The orange peel grabs are available with rotator or integrated rotation (heavy duty) with sturdy slewing, depending on the type.
The heavy duty version features solid end stops, accurate fittings, reinforced bolts and large bearing surfaces amongst others.(marine crane manufacturer;offshore crane manufacturer)
