LNG importer Gail (India) is talking up a cargo optimisation effort which has involved the novel use of a Q-Flex LNG carrier and is hoping to repeat the effort.

Company officials revealed that in June an LNG carrier on charter to the company from energy major Shell, the 173,673-cbm Castillo de Santisteban (built 2010), lifted a cargo from Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass LNG terminal in the US.
