Chile to receive first ever Snohvit LNG cargo
London, 10 September (Argus) — A cargo of Norwegian LNG was scheduled to unload in Chile later this week, as new customers outside of Europe continue to be found for Snohvit gas.
The 138,000m³ BW Suez Everett was expected to arrive at Chile's Mejillones terminal on 14 September having departed Hammerfest on around 20 August. It will be Chile's first ever delivery of Norwegian LNG, making the country the fourth new destination for Snohvit gas in 2012 so far.
It is also the third Snohvit cargo to head for a South American destination in the last month. The 147,200m³ Arctic Princess delivered a Norwegian cargo to Rio de Janeiro in late August, while the 155,000m³ British Diamond is due to arrive at Bahia Blanca in Argentina later this week.
Based on tanker size, 17pc of Snohvit's total exports have crossed the Atlantic this year, compared with just 11pc last year. The Americas and the Caribbean have taken as much Snohvit gas this year as destinations east of Suez. Last year, Asia-Pacific accounted for 29pc of Snohvit's total output.
