    Growth in LNG trade was driven in part by new liquefaction capacity commissioned in Australia, the U.S. and Russia, collectively adding 3.4 Bcf/d of liquefaction capacity. The world’s first floating liquefaction plant, Malaysia’s PFLNG Satu (0.2 Bcf/d capacity), was also commissioned in 2017. Since 2013, the U.S. and Australia have added a combined 9.67 Bcf/d of new liquefaction capacity, with another 8.3 Bcf/d expected to be completed by 2020. Including additions in the U.S. and Australia, liquefaction projects currently under construction are projected to increase global liquefaction capacity by 13.5 Bcf/d by 2022.

    The U.S. is expected to add 6.05 Bcf/d of new liquefaction capacity by 2021, in addition to 3.5 Bcf/d already in operation at Sabine Pass (LA) and Cove Point (MD). This year the Elba Island (GA) liquefaction project is expected to commission the first six of 10 small modular liquefaction units, or trains, with a combined capacity of 0.2 Bcf/d. New trains at Cameron (LA), Freeport (TX), and Corpus Christi (TX), all along the U.S. Gulf Coast, are expected to be commissioned in the next three years.

      Will Owen, Assistant Editor LNG Industry, 12 April 2019 - Woodside driving development of domestic LNG market

      The Woodside-operated Pluto LNG project has opened its new LNG truck loading facility, a key milestone towards development of a local LNG market for remote power generation and transport fuels. The Premier of Western Australia, the Hon. Mark McGowan MLA, officially opened the facility at a ceremony in Karratha.

      The facility will initially be able to deliver seven LNG truck loadings per day, each one transporting the equivalent of more than 80 000 litres of diesel. Woodside’s initial focus is on supplying trucked LNG to mining operations and communities in the Pilbara, Kimberley and elsewhere in WA for power generation. Trucked LNG will also be used to supply coastal marine vessels, including the LNG-powered Siem Thiima which joined Woodside’s fleet in 2017.

      Around three billion litres of diesel are imported into the Pilbara every year, mainly for the mining industry. In addition, the ships exporting iron ore to international markets from the Pilbara consume approximately five billion litres of heavy fuel oil annually.

      Ms O’Neill thanked the Pluto Joint Venture participants Kansai Electric and Tokyo Gas, downstream joint venture partner EDL Energy, trucking partner Linfox and foundation customer Sheffield Resources for their support in bringing the project to completion.

        David Rowlands for LNG Industry 30 August 2019 - MAN Energy Solutions inaugurates dual-fuel power plant in Benin

        The Maria Gleta power plant is located near the city of Cotonou, Benin. The dual-fuel plant is now fully operational and will supply the grid of Benin with 127 MW of electrical output. It increases Benin’s capacity for electricity generation by more than 50%.

        The plant features seven MAN 18V51/60DF gensets, which will mainly run on low-emission natural gas. The plant was built by a consortium featuring MAN Energy Solutions and BWSC. The facility was also visited by a delegation of energy secretaries from the neighbouring countries Burkina-Faso, Togo, Niger and by the general secretary of West Africa Power Pool (WAPP), emphasising the showcase character of the project for the region.

        Recently, the government of Benin signed an agreement with TOTAL for the development of a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), which will ensure the supply of the Maria Gleta plant with LNG

          Large-capacity crude oil tanker to cross Northern Sea Route on LNG for first time

          David Rowlands for LNG Industry, 29 August 2019 - Tanker takes Northern Sea Route on LNG for first time

          Sovcomflot has announced that its LNG-fuelled Aframax crude oil tanker Korolev Prospect is set to become the first such large-capacity crude oil tanker to travel the entire length of the Northern Sea Route using only LNG (actually dual fuel diesel/LNG).

          The vessel set sail on 26 August 2019, and is delivering a cargo of crude oil from the port of Murmansk to China. The journey from Cape Zhelaniya to Cape Dezhnev will take approximately eight days, with the ship travelling at an expected average speed of 12 knots.

            Jessica Jaganathan for Reuters - Chinese buyers offer to resell LNG cargoes as they struggle with weak demand

            Chinese companies are offering to resell LNG cargoes in the spot market as they grapple with high inventory amid weak demand due to a slowing economy and a milder than usual winter, several trade sources said on Monday. About 5 to 7 LNG cargoes are being offered for resale in a month. China National Offshore Oil Corporation has so far sold at least one cargo to a Japanese buyer. A second source added that buyers in northeast China may be facing ‘tank-tops’ which refers to LNG storage tanks being full.
