UK receives first cargo from Russia's Yamal LNG

London (Platts)--29Dec2017/324 pm EST/2024 GMT


* First Yamal cargo arrives at Isle of Grain * Next two cargoes destined for Gate and Montoir * Volumes likely to be shipped onwards to premium markets The first cargo lifted from Yamal LNG has been delivered into the UK's Isle of Grain terminal aboard the Arc 7 tanker, the Christophe De Margerie, according to data from cFlow, Platts trade flow software.

Yamal LNG's second cargo was expected to be delivered into the Rotterdam's Gate LNG terminal aboard the Boris Vilkitsky.

The third cargo will be loaded aboard the Fedor Litke, with the expectation that the vessel will berth at the Montoir LNG terminal.

Market participants had said that the wide spread between prices in the Pacific basin and Europe meant all Yamal cargoes will be transferred to other vessels for delivery into other markets.

By the start of Friday's trade, the spread between the NBP February contract and the JKM for February delivery into Northeast Asia, stood at $3.552/MMBtu.

The first train of the Yamal LNG project began production in December 2017, with Train 2 and Train 3 expected to come online in 2018 and 2019, respectively, with a nameplate capacity of 16.5 million/mt per year.

The project is a joint venture between Novatek (50.1%), Total (20%), CNPC (20%) and the Silk Road Fund (9.9%).
