Qatargas has shipped its first cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Pakistan as part of the first ever LNG import agreement between the two countries. 

The LNG cargo, which was sold to Pakistan State Oil Company (PSO), was loaded on an LNG vessel at Qatar's Ras Laffan Port on 21st of March.

The cargo was secured to commission the vessel, which will become the Floating Storage and Regasification Unit as part of the Elengy LNG terminal - Pakistan's first LNG import terminal.

Qatargas, which has helped commission 14 LNG terminals globally, said in a statement: "The delivery of LNG to PSO is important milestone for Qatargas as it continues to play a key role in the Middle Eastern market and positions itself as a world leader in the supply of energy to global and new markets."

Pakistan's demand for natural gas has grown in recent years with gas making up a major part of its energy mix.
