Kuwait LNG terminal still waiting on first cargo
Sakhalin tanker diverted to India's Hazira terminal
Despite the recent commissioning of Kuwait’s Mina Al-Ahmadi LNG terminal, the site is still awaiting its first delivery.
The Grand Elena tanker, which has been anchored off the coast off the coast of the Northern Gulf State for almost a month, is now en route India’s Hazira terminal, according to Reuters.
The ship was earmarked to be the second delivery to the terminal, which is a partnership between Excelerate Energy and Kuwait Petroleum Company.
Shell is jointly responsible for delivering the Grand Elena to Kuwait, but another Shell cargo, a Sohar LNG tanker is still off Kuwait.
This tanker is thought to be the first commercial cargo delivered to the Mina Al-Ahmadi terminal.
Earlier this month, Reuters reported that the Express LNG carrier from Australia had arrived on around August 1; it is unclear whether this vessel managed to complete delivery.
