Moscow - Russia’s ship giant Novatek announced on Friday that Yamal Lng, its liquefied natural gas facility (LNG) in the Yamal peninsula, shipped the first cargo LNG to Spanish company Gas Natural Fenosa in accordance with the long-term offtake agreement.
The 170 thousand cubic meter Arc7 ice-class LNG carrier “Fedor Litke” unloaded the first cargo in the port of Mugardos in accordance with the lifting and delivery schedule. Annual sales volumes according to the 24-year long-term offtake contract are 2.5 million tons of LNG, which equals to more than 3 billion cubic meters of natural gas.
Novatek’s Chairman of Management Board Leonid Mikhelson noted: “The first LNG tanker shipped today to Gas Natural Fenosa marks a new milestone in Russian natural gas deliveries as it is the first Russian gas delivered under long-term agreements to Spain where Russian pipeline gas is not supplied. We look forward to fulfilling our long-term LNG contract by supplying clean-burning natural gas to Gas Natural Fenosa – the largest supplier of natural gas in the Spanish market”.
