Chile May Get Trinidad LNG From BG as Ship Arrives at Quintero

Chile may receive a cargo of liquefied natural gas from Trinidad & Tobago today, according to ship-tracking data.

The LNG Jupiter, with a capacity of 152,880 cubic meters, is scheduled to arrive at the port of Quintero on Chile’s central coast, according to ship transmissions captured by IHS Inc. on Bloomberg. The tanker sailed from the Point Fortin LNG terminal in Trinidad & Tobago where it loaded its cargo and departed late January.

Chile has a contract to import 1.7 million metric tons of LNG annually from BG Plc’s portfolio that started in 2009 and ends in 2030 according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

“We don’t comment on individual shipments as these arrangements are confidential between supplier and customer,” Damien Bird, a BG spokesman in Singapore, said in an e-mailed statement.
