GAC benefits from Jordan energy upgrade

August 19 - Jordan's contract with Shell for the import of nearly 17 million cu m of gas per day is delivering brisk business for GAC, the global shipping and logistics provider.

GAC Jordan acted as agent for the 'Golar Eskimo' when it made its port call at Aqaba to offload 144,218 cu m of LNG from Qatar. 

GAC has handled ship-to-ship transfers of LNG from the 'Castillo De Santisteban', the first LNG carrier to call at Aqaba, and the 'SCF Melampus', to the 'Golar Eskimo'. After loading, the LNG was regasified and pumped as natural gas to the National Electric Power Company's (NEPCO) power stations.

"As the government of Jordan seeks additional supplies to meet energy demand, GAC Jordan is looking forward to handling more gascarriers at Aqaba," said GAC Jordan managing director Ghassoub Kawar. 

"Having handled the first Floating Storage Regasification Unit to call at the port's new terminal, we are now ramping up to handle many more vessels in the near future, with about four LNG carriers expected each month."
