At 21:18 on January 5, 2023, at the sea in Thai Binh Province, PV GAS Trading - the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) trading arm of Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corporation (PV GAS) - imported a LPG ship of "Hello Spring 2023" to serve the Northern market. All 32,000 tons of LPG was successfully transferred to Viet Dragon 68 Floating Storage Vessel to ensure the energy source for the Northern region during the Lunar Year of the Cat.

In the first working week of the whole country at the beginning of 2023, amid high energy demand in the period near the Lunar Year of the Cat and the post-COVID-19 recovering economy, PV GAS Trading imported 32,000 tons of refrigerated LPG from Ras Tanura port - Saudi Arabia by Avance Levant vessel to the Viet Dragon 68 Floating Storage Vessel. This has been the 17th refrigerated LPG import ship since the Northern Floating Storage project came into operation and the first import refrigerated LPG ship in 2023. 18 months after the operation, Viet Dragon 68 has received a total of more than 500,000 tons of refrigerated LPG from the international market, serving the demand of civil and industrial energy in the country’s North and Central regions.

Whereas, cadres and employees involving in the transshipment also witnessed an interesting image when a group of five white dolphins came up to the surface of the water and swam around the Viet Dragon 68 Floating Storage Vessel. The dolphins’ appearance was a signal of a favorable start for PV GAS Trading in the new year, especially after the company has just exceeded its 2022 plan with the total revenue of nearly VND 40 trillion. 

The first LPG import ship in 2023 was carried out with the careful supervision and surveillance of specialized divisions at PV GAS/PV GAS Trading. Efforts to complete the import safely and on time in the first days of 2023 were a firm commitment of the market leading unit, promising the continued success of PV GAS Trading and the Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corporation in the new year.
