Second tanker with Russian gas may reach U.S. on Feb. 15
A tanker named Provalys will pick up Russian natural gas from Dunkirk, France, and may reach the U.S. on about Feb. 15, according to Kpler SAS, a cargo-tracking company. It will be the second tanker, which delivers Russian gas to America.
The tankers would arrive at a time when New England is paying a hefty premium for supplies as pipeline capacity limits flows of cheap shale gas from other parts of the country in the peak demand season, Bloomberg reports.
Engie SA’s Everett import terminal purchased that cargo from Dunkirk before the winter season began because “we anticipate LNG demand greater than what we had already scheduled from Trinidad” and scheduled it for the latter half of the winter, Carol Churchill, a spokeswoman the terminal said.
