AMMAN — The steamship rented for the liquefied natural gas project in Aqaba will arrive at the LNG terminal on May 25 after undergoing the required adjustments, Energy Minister Ibrahim Saif said Tuesday.

Saif added that the steamship is currently docked in regional waters near Singapore, waiting to leave for Qatar in order to be filled with the LNG shipment required for operational tests.

The minister said the steamship is one of the most important elements of the LNG project conducted by the ministry to secure new natural gas sources and supply power plants.

The steamship can store up to 160,000 cubic metres of LNG, and can supply a maximum of 715 million cubic feet per day.
