Spain’s imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) rose 14.2 percent in June on a yearly basis, according to the data provided by the LNG terminal operator, Enagás.

LNG imports reached 15.05 terawatt hours (TWh) in June, as compared to 13.16 TWh in the same month the year before.

The majority of imports came from Nigeria and Peru, followed by volumes from Algeria, Angola and Qatar.

Enagás’ Barcelona regasification plant received five out of the total 16 LNG cargoes imported into Spain during the month under review.

The report shows that the Huelva LNG import terminal received four cargoes while two landed each in Bilbao, Sagunto and Mugardos. The Cartagena LNG terminal received one cargo.

One of the reasons for the rise in Spanish LNG imports was hot weather in June which led to increased demand for air conditioning.

Gas-to-power electricity generation in Spain rose 57 percent on year in June. To remind, Enagás recently said that daily natural gas demand for power generation reached a record high on June 21 hitting 465 GWh, the highest summer value since 2011.

According to Spain’s meteorological agency Aemet, the average temperature recorded during June in the country had been 2.48ºC above that recorded during the same month last year.

The country’s total natural gas imports dropped 3.9 percent reaching 29.4 TWh in June due to lower pipeline imports from Algeria, the Enagás data showed.
