More Norwegian LNG for Spain


Spain continues to be the primary recipient of Norwegian LNG. The country has taken eight of the past 11 cargoes to be despatched from Norway’s Snohvit LNG train.

The latest cargo was loaded aboard the Arctic Princess late last week and the vessel set off this morning for Bilbao, where it is expected to arrive on 28 July.

The Gemmata loaded a cargo about a fortnight ago and was berthing at the Reganosa terminal in El Ferrol this afternoon.

One of the other three tankers to be loaded was sent to the UK and another to France, while the third — the Arctic Discoverer — has been anchored in a fjord at the northern cape for about a fortnight.

About as much Norwegian LNG had been despatched to north America as to Spain by late April, while other European destinations — notably the UK — received far more than in previous years.

But the frequency of Norwegian shipments to Spain since then has lifted its share of cargoes loaded at Melkoya to nearly half.

The US and UK have taken six apiece — each accounting for nearly a fifth of the train’s output — while three have gone to France, one to Canada and one to Belgium.

The Excellence was moored alongside the Melkoya liquefaction terminal this afternoon.

Shipping sources said the tanker was headed for a destination in the north Atlantic.

The tanker can berth at dock-side regasification facilities in Boston and Louisiana in the US and Teesside in the UK, as well as facilities in Argentina and Kuwait, in addition to standard LNG reception terminals.

Floating LNG

Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
