REN-operated Sines LNG import terminal in Portugal is to receive a new cargo of the chilled fuel from Nigeria.

The cargo will be delivered from Nigeria LNG’s Bonny Island liquefaction plant onboard the dual fuel diesel electric (DFDE) LNG carrier LNG Lagos II.

The vessel with the capacity to transport 177,000 cubic meters of liquefied natural gas was built by the South Korean shipyard Hyundai Heavy Industries and delivered to Bonny Gas Transport (BGT), a unit of Nigeria LNG at the end of 2015.

Shipping data from the port of Sines shows that the LNG carrier is scheduled to dock at the terminal on April 21.

NLNG’s Bonny Island facility has the capacity to produce 22 mtpa of liquefied natural gas from its six trains.

Sines LNG terminal, located on Portugal’s Atlantic coast, has a nominal send out capacity of 600,000 cubic meters per hour (5.26 bcm per year), with a peak capacity of 900,000 cubic meters per hour.
