Mexico Set to Receive LNG Spot Cargo From Norway at Altamira

Mexico is set to receive a spot cargo of liquefied natural gas from Norway next week, ship-tracking data show.

The Meridian Spirit, with a capacity of about 163,000 cubic meters, is scheduled to arrive Oct. 10 at Altamira on Mexico’s east coast, according to transmissions captured by IHS Fairplay on Bloomberg. The tanker loaded the supercooled gas at Statoil ASA (STL)’s Hammerfest LNG terminal in northern Norway and departed Sept. 25, according to the data.

Mexico doesn’t have term LNG-supply contracts with Norway, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
