Export and shipping
We are exporting around 7.4 million tonnes of LNG each year to our customers in Asia. This involves approximately 100 cargos departing our marine facility annually.
To meet our commitment to our customers, we maintain long-term charters on a fleet of four LNG carriers which include the Spirt of Hela, Gigira Laitebo, Papua and Kumul.
The carriers have a capacity ranging from 169,000 cubic metres to 175,000 cubic metres. Our marine facility is built to accommodate LNG carriers up approximately 215,000 cubic metres.
The Papua and Kumul were custom-built in China to ship PNG LNG gas. The Papua began service in February 2015, while the Kumul loaded its first cargo in June 2016.
All carriers meet ExxonMobil and international safety and regulatory guidelines and are operated by Mitsui O.S. K Lines.
