Recent maintenance at Snohvit has led to a drop in May exports. The fleet has been reallocated accordingly:

  • Arctic Lady is currently discharging her Bethioua cargo at SLNG
  • Arctic Discoverer is en route to deliver a Sabine Pass cargo to Gate, ETA 7th June
  • Arctic Aurora is heading to Sabine to load an early June cargo

Idku is experiencing high activity in May. Two cargoes have been loaded aboard Gaslog Geneva and Provalys, with destination of Delimara and Fos Cavaou respectively. A third cargo is due for loading aboard BW GDF Suez Brussels this week. This contrasts with a significant decrease of Egyptian imports for the same month.
