GDF SUEZ delivered its first cargo of Liquefied Natural Gas to the Dubai Supply Authority's Jebel Ali Terminal
As a global LNG supplier, GDF SUEZ has enlarged its footprint in the Middle East with the delivery of its first LNG cargo to Dubai on the 4th of August. The LNG carrier “BW GDF SUEZ Boston”, with a 138,000 cu.m capacity, has unloaded its LNG cargo to the United Arab Emirates’ sole LNG import terminal, offshore Dubai.
This new LNG delivery is in line with GDF SUEZ ambition in high growth regions, especially in the Asia Pacific basin and in the Middle East: to be a reliable LNG supplier and to build and develop strong relationships for all its business activities. Between 2010 and 2016, GDF SUEZ is planning to deliver about 10.8 million tons of LNG to major energy players in Asia (KOGAS, CNOOC, Petronas, Petronet, PTT and GAIL). GDF SUEZ is one of the few European utilities with the flexibility in its natural gas portfolio to direct volumes to these markets.

During the first semester of 2013, GDF SUEZ delivered LNG cargoes mainly in Europe and in Asia, and also in Americas. To expand its portfolio of LNG supplies, GDF SUEZ is involved in the development of 3 liquefaction plants projects: Cameron LNG project in the US, Bonaparte LNG in Australia and Cameroon LNG.
