Another three spot LNG cargoes arriving

Vol 17, PW 25 (31 Jul 14) News in Brief

GSPC and Petronet-LNG are bringing in one cargo each from RasGas to Dahej while Reliance is bringing in a Qatari cargo at Hazira.

GSPC wanted to bring in its cargo at Dahej on July 31 but its slot was cancelled because of overcapacity, so the cargo will now come in early August. GSPC earlier landed a cargo at Dahej on July 7.

Petronet-LNG is bringing in its cargo at Dahej in mid-August under a one-year 800,000 t/y deal signed in March 2014 with RasGas to supply IOC. Reliance’s cargo is also due in mid-August.
