LNG exported in ISO tanks to China

The export of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in ISO tank containers to China is being carried out by Petronas from its port in Pasir Gudang, Johor.

The shipment to Shanghai was made on April 13, 2021 and marked the first export of Petroliam Nasional Berhad’s (Petronas) LNG in ISO tank containers from Johor to China, with Johor Port providing the critical dangerous goods (DG) management and special cargo handling services. This ensured the success of the maiden shipment, which was safely delivered to the Port of Shanghai from Johor Port on April 23, 2021.

“Johor Port has direct calls to Intra-Asia destinations and is capable of managing dangerous goods (DG) as well as handling special cargo to cater for cargoes that do not come in a standard container. The maiden shipment further validates Johor Port’s important role in strengthening Malaysia’s position as an LNG ISO tank export hub,” said Derick Basir, chief executive officer, Johor Port Berhad.
