Spain’s imports of liquefied natural gas dropped 26.6 percent in August on a yearly basis as pipeline supplies from Algeria surged 42 percent, according to the data released on Monday by the LNG terminal operator, Enagás.

LNG imports reached some 14 terawatt hours (TWh) or about 1.1 million tonnes of LNG last month, the Enagás data shows.

Total natural gas imports, including piped supplies, dropped 4.3 percent to 30.2 TWh. Pipeline supplies from Algeria rose to 13.7 TWh, as compared to 8 TWh in August 2017.

Qatar was the biggest LNG supplier to Spain last month with some 3.1 TWh, followed by Trinidad with 2.5 TWh. Qatari LNG volumes dropped 65 percent year-on-year while volumes from Trinidad almost tripled to 2.5 TWh.

The rest of Spain’s August LNG imports were sourced from Norway (1.8 TWh), Nigeria (1.8 TWh), Peru (1.7 TWh), Algeria (o.9 TWh) and the US (o.9 TWh), according to the Enagás data.

The Barcelona regasification plant received six LNG cargoes out of the total 16 cargoes imported into Spain during the month under review.

Huelva and Bilbao received four LNG cargoes in August, each. The Mugardos and the Cartagena plant also receive one cargo, each.

There were no reloads last month, according to the Enagás data.
