On August 9, 2022, AltaGas achieved a significant milestone and welcomed its 100th Very Large Gas Carrier (VLGC) at the Ridley Island Propane Export Terminal (RIPET). AltaGas’ operations teams transferred 600,000 barrels (approximately 48,000 tonnes) of propane onto the BW Mindoro, bound for Japan. That’s enough propane to fill over five million barbeque tanks.
Of note, the carrier used by Altagas is their first duel fuel VGLC powered by propane, which allows them to support a lower carbon footprint in their global exports.
