Japan Receives LNG Spot Cargo From Nigeria at Chita Terminal

Jan. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Japan, the world’s largest buyer of liquefied natural gas, received a spot cargo from Nigeria at Chita, ship-tracking data show.

The LNG Imo, with a capacity of about 148,000 cubic meters, arrived Jan. 11 at the Chita terminal in central Japan, according to transmissions captured by IHS Fairplay on Bloomberg. The vessel loaded the supercooled gas at Nigeria LNG Ltd.’s Bonny Island terminal and departed Dec. 15.

Japan’s two terminals in the Chita peninsula, with a combined capacity of 19.9 million metric tons a year, receive term shipments from Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, Qatar, Russia and Algeria, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Asian LNG buyers typically import spot cargoes from December to March to meet peak heating and power demand during winter in the northern hemisphere.
