Portugal receives Nigerian LNG cargo
Portugal’s Sines LNG terminal has on Wednesday, May 1, received its first liquefied natural gas cargo of the month from Nigeria.
According to the shipping data by the Port of Sines, the cargo was delivered aboard the 135,000 cbm LNG Rivers.
The chilled gas was loaded at Nigeria’s LNG export plant on Bonny Island.
Sines LNG terminal, owned by REN Atlântico, lies in the Portuguese Atlantic coast. It has a nominal send out capacity of 600,000 cubic meters per hour.
The terminal was also the first European facility to receive a cargo of LNG produced from shale gas from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export facility in Louisiana.
