- Ports & Logistics
REN’s Sines LNG import terminal on Portugal’s Atlantic coast has booked two cargoes for the end of November and early December.
The first of the two cargoes will be delivered by the 75,000-cbm Cheikh El Mokrani from Algeria’s 4.7 mtpa Skikda liquefaction plant on November 26, port data reveals.
The second cargo will be delivered on December 3, onboard the 173,656-cbm LNG carrier La Mancha Knutsen. The cargo is dispatched from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction and export facility in the United States.
Portugal mostly imports liquefied natural gas from Nigeria, Algeria and Qatar.
Sines LNG terminal has a nominal send out capacity of 600,000 cubic meters per hour (5.26 bcm per year), with a peak capacity of 900,000 cubic meters per hour.
