North West Europe: Lineup and Inventories
Inventories are reaching tank heel, with current levels at 319.6 Gwh/d. Kpler analysts expect send-out levels to remain low in the coming days, with a potential discharge in May. Dragon LNG currently has 4 available capacity slots on offer (shown above)
According to Dunkerque LNG, a total of 3 cargos were delivered in April and 2 cargos are expected in May.
Rasgas’ Al Khuwair has been confirmed by the Port Authority for discharge 5-May. Kpler Analysts will provide an update as soon as we confirm the second cargo. If the current planned unloading quantity is reliable, we will expect the second cargo to be delivered by a Q-Flex carrier from Ras Laffan.
Average send-out levels at Gate have increased in the first days of May to 142 Gwh/d. Kpler analysts expect a cargo to arrive within weeks.
To Keep on Your Radar
Al Karaana is headed towards the Suez canal with no clear destination. Kpler Analysts forecast that the vessel can discharge at Dragon. This remains unconfirmed and is subject to change.
Arctic Voyager is currently floating near Skagen. Kpler Analysts forecast Gate as her next destination and await further data to confirm her discharge.
Rasheeda is loading at Ras Laffan. This is a potential Q-Max cargo for South Hook and should be monitored in the days to come.
Al Sheehaniya is currently idle at the Ras Laffan anchorage. Kpler Analysts are monitoring her activity as this vessel regularly delivers LNG in Europe.
