The LNG Borno, with a capacity of 150,000 cubic meters, is sailing to the Rudong terminal in China’s Jiangsu province, according to ship transmissions captured by IHS Fairplay on Bloomberg. The vessel loaded the gas at Nigeria LNG Ltd.’s Bonny Island terminal and departed Nov. 24, the data show.
PetroChina has no long-term contract to buy gas from Nigeria. The company operates the 3.5 million metric-ton-a-year Jiangsu LNG terminal, a 3 million ton receiving facility at Dalian, and the 3.5 million ton Tangshan plant, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
Asian LNG importers typically purchase spot cargoes from December to March to meet peak heating and power demand.
