France’s Dunkirk liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal has received its first cargo of the chilled fuel for the year of 2019.

The cargo was delivered to the Dunkirk facility on Wednesday onboard Sovconflot’s 170,200-cbm LNG carrier SCF Melampus, according to Dunkerque LNG, the terminal operator.

AIS data provided by VesselsValue shows that the LNG carrier had previously taken a cargo of LNG via a ship-to-ship operation off Honningsvag in northern Norway.

To remind,  Russia’s Novatek completed the first ship-to-ship LNG transshipment in the area near the port of Honningsvag in November last year.

The Arc7 ice-class LNG tanker Vladimir Rusanov reloaded an LNG cargo delivered from the Yamal LNG facility at Sabetta to the lower ice-class designated tanker Pskov, which then delivered the reloaded cargo to customers in North-West Europe.
