Another Winter LNG Cargo Appears to Divert to Europe From China

  • Hellas Diana tanker was heading from U.S. to Tianjin
  • At least seven other vessels have been diverted from Asia

Traders may have diverted another cargo of liquefied natural gas to Europe instead of China amid the continent’s energy crunch. 

The vessel Hellas Diana sharply changed course from Tianjin and is likely headed to Europe, according to Mathew Ang, an analyst at Kpler. The ship, which left Corpus Christi, Texas, around Nov. 27, U-turned near Hawaii and is traveling toward the Panama Canal, Bloomberg shipping data showed.
