Ship-to-ship LNG transfer

Exmar NV reports that the first commercial ship-to-ship (STS) transfer of LNG has taken place in the Gulf of Mexico.

A total of 20,650 cubic meters of LNG was successfully transferred from the LNGRV Excelsior (130,800 cu.m ,built 2005) to Excalibur (138,000 cu.m, built 2002).

As a result of this milestone in the LNG industry, says Exmar the operational flexibility of the regasification vessels it operates together with Excelerate Energy will be greatly enhanced.

Exmar is one of the largest independent operators of gas tankers in the world with a fleet of 50 ships ranging from 150,900 cu,m LNG carriers down to 10,500 cu.m semi-pressurized LPG/Ethylene carriers.
