Spain’s imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) rose almost 112 percent in February as compared to the same month in the year before.

LNG imports reached 20.9 terawatt hours (TWh) in February, as compared to 9.9 TWh the year before, according to the data provided by the Spanish LNG terminal operator, Enagás.

The majority of imports came from Algeria, Nigeria, Peru and Qatar. The rest of the February LNG volumes came from Norway, the United States, Angola and Trinidad.

LNG imports from Algeria recovered in February after a month-long outage at the Skikda export facility. Spain’s LNG imports from Algeria surged more than 230 percent on year to 4.4 TWh in February, the Enagás data shows.

Spain’s total natural gas imports reached 39.7 TWh last month, showing an increase of 59.7 percent from 24.8 TWh in February 2016.

Enagás’ Barcelona regasification plant received 8 out of the total 26 LNG cargoes imported into Spain during the month under review.

The report shows that the Huelva and the Sagunto LNG import terminal received 6 cargoes each while 3 landed in Bilbao. The Cartagena LNG terminal received 2 cargoes with 1 cargo imported via the Mugardos regasification facility in February.

Spain, the world’s largest re-exporter of LNG, did not ship any cargoes of previously imported LNG during the month of February.
