The Gate terminal in the Dutch port of Rotterdam is expected to handle this week the second cargo from the Novatek-operated Yamal LNG project in the Russian Arctic.

To remind, Gate performed the first-ever transshipment of a cargo sourced from the Russian project in late December.

According to the vessel tracking data by the marine data provider, VesselsValue, the 172,600-cbm ice-class carrier Christophe de Margerie loaded a cargo at the Yamal facility last week and is expected to arrive at Gate on February 9.

Sovomflot’s Christophe de Margerie also delivered the first-ever Yamal LNG cargo to the UK’s Grain terminal in December.

It was not immediately clear whether the fuel Christophe de Margerie is carrying will be transshipped or it will end up in Gate’s tanks for further delivery.

The three-train Yamal LNG plant, designed to produce about 16.5 million tonnes per year, started liquefying and shipping the fuel in December. It is Russia’s second LNG export facility.

The ice-class tankers carrying volumes from Yamal LNG will regularly transfer cargoes at north-west European terminals during winter, where conventional vessels can pick them up for delivery to Asia or other higher-paying markets.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
