Portuguese Import Terminal Awaiting LNG Cargo From Nugeria

REN-operated Sines LNG import terminal in Portugal is set to receive a cargo of liquified natural gas from Nigeria later this week.

The Sines LNG terminal will receive gas from the Nigeria LNG Bonny Island liquefaction plant via the LNG Ondo liquefied natural gas carrier.

The vessel with the capacity to transport 148.471 cubic meters of liquefied natural gas was built by the South Korean shipyard Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.

The LNG carrier was completed 2007 and named LNG Owdo but renamed LNG Ondo for BW Group. The vessel is currently working on a long-term charter for Nigeria LNG.

According to data provided by the port of Sines, the LNG carrier is scheduled to dock at the terminal on March 8. VesselsValue data states that the vessel is currently passing off the shore of La Güera, Algeria.

NLNG’s Bonny Island facility has the capacity to produce 22 mtpa of liquefied natural gas from its six trains.

Sines LNG terminal, located on Portugal’s Atlantic coast, 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.
