Report: CNOOC diverts two cargoes from Tianjin FSRU
China National Offshore Oil Corporation has reportedly diverted two LNG cargoes from its floating LNG import terminal in the northeastern Chinese city of Tianjin.
Cargoes were diverted from the terminal as a natural gas pipeline in Tianjin was closed due to fire, Reuters reports, citing traders.
It was further noted that the imports at the terminal were back on track on at the beginning of the week.
The diverted cargoes were sold back to the supplier under the force majeure terms.
LNG World News contacted CNOOC seeking clarification of the events, however, no comment was received by the time this article was published.
The 145,000 cbm GDF Suez Cape Ann, which is being used as an LNG import terminal in Tianjin, is owned by Höegh LNG Partners, a unit of Norway’s Höegh LNG, but it is under a 20-year charter until 2030 to France’s Engie, formerly GDF Suez.
It is serving the Tianjin project under a sub-charter between Engie and CNOOC signed in 2013.
