|="LNG Benue" from Nigeria enters Nagoya Port|
According to ship tracking data, LNG carrier "LNG Dream" owned by Osaka Gas Co., Ltd. left North West Shelf (NWS) LNG terminal located on the Burrup Peninsula near Dampier in Australia for Okinawa, Japan. Based on Sales and Purchase Agreement (SPA) between Osaka Gas as a seller and Okinawa Electric Power Company as a buyer, about 400,000 tons per year of LNG is to be delivered to Yoshinoura Thermal Power Plant.|
Osaka Gas began supplying LNG in May 2012 in accordance with the schedule to start commissioning of Yoshinoura thermal power station unit 1. This is the third cargo after the second one that arrived last November, and is expected to reach Yoshinoura around May 25th.
Incidentally, "Tangguh Hiri" entered NWS LNG Terminal around April 18th.
On the other hand, information about estimated time of arrival of LNG carriers says that "LNG Benue" from Nigeria came into Nagoya Port in Ise Bay, an arm of the Pacific Ocean on the central coast of Honshu, Japan. During the week from April 20th to 26th, total four vessels are to sail into Nagoya Port and Yokkaichi Port in the bay, consisting of the above-mentioned vessel from Nigeria, two vessels from Qatar and one vessel from Indonesia.
During the period, nine LNG carriers are scheduled to reach ports in Tokyo Bay. They are considered to have been coming from Malaysia, Qatar, Australia and Brunei, etc.
Besides these vessels, " LNG Swift" arrived at Higashi Ohgishima LNG Terminal operated by Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) on April 19th. The ship is now being chartered by a Japanese trading firm and seems to have carried LNG from Nigeria.
Meanwhile, around April 17th, "Energy Navigator" entered Tobata Port in Kyushu, the southernmost of the four major islands of Japan around April 17th.
