T&T reaches new LNG milestone

T&T has achieved an­oth­er sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone in its LNG busi­ness: the coun­try’s 4000th LNG car­go was lift­ed suc­cess­ful­ly over r the week­end on­to the Gem­ma­ta, an LNG tanker on its 15th voy­age to the At­lantic fa­cil­i­ty in Point Fortin.

The ves­sel berthed at At­lantic’s Jet­ty #2 at 6 am on Sat­ur­day, and fin­ished load­ing by 3.30 am yes­ter­day.

To mark the his­toric oc­ca­sion, an At­lantic del­e­ga­tion board­ed the Gem­ma­ta and ex­changed sym­bol­ic to­kens with Cap­tain Karol Kop­erek.

At­lantic CEO Dr. Philip Mshel­bi­la said that in­stru­men­tal to the 4000th car­go mile­stone was the ex­per­tise of At­lantic’s peo­ple and their deep com­mit­ment to safe­ty and to fur­ther­ing LNG’s con­tri­bu­tion to the na­tion­al econ­o­my of the coun­try.

“This mile­stone achieve­ment is a cel­e­bra­tion for all Trin­bag­o­ni­ans, not on­ly At­lantic’s em­ploy­ees,” Dr. Mshel­bi­la said.

“It is a tes­ti­mo­ny that Trinidad and To­ba­go’s LNG con­tin­ues to be com­pet­i­tive in mar­kets across the globe, and it al­so speaks to At­lantic’s track record in safe lift­ings and safe, re­li­able op­er­a­tions. With four thou­sand car­goes since the first was lift­ed by this coun­try, LNG con­tin­ues to add sig­nif­i­cant val­ue to the na­tion­al econ­o­my and to the de­vel­op­ment of Trinidad and To­ba­go’s cit­i­zens.”

T&T’s 4000th LNG car­go is the lat­est achieve­ment in the coun­try’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the glob­al LNG and en­er­gy busi­ness.

The coun­try is cur­rent­ly among the world’s top 10 LNG pro­duc­ing coun­tries.

Em­ploy­ees of LNG pro­duc­tion com­pa­ny At­lantic have al­so lent their ex­per­tise to help with start-up and com­mis­sion­ing ac­tiv­i­ties of oth­er LNG fa­cil­i­ties in Aus­tralia, An­go­la and Azer­bai­jan.
