Spain’s imports of liquefied natural gas rose 2.4 percent in September when compared to the same month a year ago, according to the data released by the LNG terminal operator, Enagás.

LNG imports reached some 12.2 terawatt hours (TWh) last month as compared to 11.9 TWh in September 2017, the Enagás data shows.

Total natural gas imports, including piped supplies, rose 9.3 percent to 29.5 TWh. Pipeline supplies from Algeria rose to 13.7 TWh, as compared to 11.4 TWh in September 2017.

Qatar was the biggest LNG supplier to Spain last month with some 5 TWh, followed by Nigeria with 3.7 TWh.

Qatari LNG volumes almost tripled year-on-year while volumes from Nigeria rose 25.4 percent.

The rest of Spain’s September LNG imports were sourced from Trinidad (1.67 TWh), Russia (0.99 TWh) and Peru (0.85 TWh), according to the Enagás data.

The Barcelona regasification plant received five LNG cargoes out of the total 13 cargoes imported into Spain during the month under review.

Huelva received four LNG cargoes while Bilbao took three shipments last month. The Mugardos plant received one cargo in Sepember.

There were no reloads last month.
