The Gate LNG terminal in the port of Rotterdam is to receive a fresh cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Statoil’s Hammerfest plant in Norway.

The 140,000-cbm Arctic Discoverer departed from the liquefaction facility on Melkoya island on Tuesday and is scheduled to land at Gate around October 9, according to the marine data provider, VesselsValue.

This would be the second cargo for the Dutch LNG terminal in the next seven days as the 176,300-cbm La Mancha Knutsen is currently expected to deliver a Nigerian cargo to Gate around October 6.

Gate terminal, owned by Gasunie and Vopak, is one of Europe’s largest LNG terminals, with an annual regasification capacity of 12 billion cubic meters – equal to around 180 cargoes per year.
