Q3 2016 LNG cargos from Trinidad - Spain, Argentina about to get cargos

The following are unconfirmed and based on marine traffic amid the dearth of LNG contract transparency. LNG re-sellers routinely buy from Trinidad at below-market prices and re-sell to the world including to Caribbean countries.

LNG CARGO LEAVES POINT FORTIN FOR SPAIN

* Methane Alison Victoria (Deadweight: 79,058 tons), which last reported its position September 27 (18), is believed to have left Point Fortin with an LNG cargo September 18 and is staying consistent with Bilbao, Spain, as its declared destination with an ETA of September 28.

LNG CARGO HEADED TO ARGENTINA

* Iberica Knutsen, which last reported its position September 27 (20), is believed to be taking an LNG cargo to Bahia Blanca, Argentina with an ETA of September 27, after leaving Point Fortin September 14. From the time it started loading at Point Fortin on September 14, it had declared Argentina (with an erroneous ETA of Sept. 9) as its destination.
This would be the second delivery to Argentina if it takes place on schedule. Iberica Knutsen, based on September 13 marine traffic data, is believed to have delivered an LNG cargo to Argentina between August 23 and 29, after leaving Point Fortin August 3. Previously, Iberica Knutsen had been consistent with its deliveries to Argentina, having delivered from the same source and to the same destination on July 20 (after 16 days) and on June 15 (also after 16 days).

BRITISH DIAMOND LOADING AT POINT FORTIN

* British Diamond (deadweight: 84,553 tons), which last reported its position September 25, is believed to be loading at Point Fortin now.

GALEA OFF TO SOUTH AMERICA

* Galea (dwt: 72,740 tons), which last reported its position September 26, is believed to have left Point Fortin with an LNG cargo September 25 and is on its way to Chile.

BOSTON FAVORITES: BW GDF SUEZ EVERETT AND BW GDF SUEZ BOSTON ANCHORED IN PORT OF SPAIN

GASLOG SARATOGA, CADIZ KNUTSEN, GASELYS, BRITISH MERCHANT ANCHORED IN PORT OF SPAIN TOO

* BP's British Merchant, which last reported its position September 27 (20) (12), is believed to be anchored in Port of Spain again, after taking a short run in the direction of Europe, after leaving Point Fortin with an LNG cargo September 4.
As at September 12, it appeared to be crossing the Atlantic. On return to Trinidad and Tobago (from Mexico whence it left August 8 after a historic LNG cargo delivery from Trinidad via the Panama Canal) it rested in Port of Spain for at least six days (August 23-29).

* Cadiz Knutsen, which last reported its position September 27 (11) (2), is anchored at Port of Spain.

* Gaselys, which last reported its position September 20 (13), is believed to be in Port of Spain awaiting an order, after leaving Point Fortin with an LNG cargo September 12.

SEISHU MARU, HISPANIA SPIRIT, GASLOG GREECE ON WAY BACK FOR REFILL

BRITISH TRADER, BELIEVED TO BE BP'S, IS LOADING AT POINT FORTIN

LNG CARGO HEADED TO SOUTH AMERICA: LIKELY ARGENTINA OR CHILE

* Methane Becki Anne (Deadweight: 86,269 tons), which last reported its position September 20, is believed to be taking an LNG cargo to South America (likely Argentina or Chile) with an ETA of October 16, after leaving Point Fortin September 19.

LNG CARGO BELIEVED EN ROUTE TO SOUTH AM

* Methane Heather Sally (Deadweight: 79,084 tons), which last reported its position September 11, is believed to be on its way to South America, after leaving Point Fortin with an LNG cargo September 10. As at September 13, it bore an Atlantic Basin destination with an ETA of October 1. As at September 20, without anything else changing, including its last reported position date, it said it was taking the LNG cargo to Paerdegat, U.S.A. with an October 1 ETA. It was still pointing in a South Americanly direction though (on Sept. 20).





DELIVERED IN SEPTEMBER 2016:

- Chile (2 cargos):
* Bilbao Knutsen, which last reported its position September 20 (6), is believed to have delivered an LNG cargo to Quintero, Chile September 19, after leaving Point Fortin August 30. As at September 13, it appeared to have taken itself off the tracker and was saying it was heading to the Pacific basin, still with the August 30 cargo.
* Methane Princess, which last reported its position September 7, is believed to have delivered an LNG cargo to Chile some time between September 7 and 13 after leaving Point Fortin August 16. As at September 13, with its position last reported September 13, it appeared to still be at Valparaiso, Chile offloading.

- Peru (1 cargo):
* Cadiz Knutsen, which last reported its position September 11 (2), has declared Peru as its destination with an ETA of September 18, after leaving Point Fortin with an LNG cargo August 9. It had earlier declared Argentina as its destination (and appeared to have been in Argentine waters since August 21), with the same LNG cargo of August 9. As at September 20, when it again reported its position, it appeared to be back in Port of Spain, looking to anchor.

- Puerto Rico (1 cargo):
* Seishu Maru, which last reported its position September 12, is believed to have delivered an LNG cargo to Puerto Rico on September 12, having left Point Fortin with an LNG cargo September 7. This is the second consecutive Point Fortin-Puerto Rico trip, having delivered an LNG cargo to Puerto Rico on schedule in accordance with its declared ETA of August 15, after leaving Point Fortin on August 13.

- Argentina (1 cargo)
* Iberica Knutsen, which last reported its position September 13 (Sept. 2) (Aug. 29, 23), is believed to have delivered an LNG cargo to Argentina between August 23 and 29, after leaving Point Fortin August 3. As at September 2, it appeared to have changed course as it was in Argentine waters, (without docking or discharging) between August 17 and August 23 after leaving Point Fortin August 3. If it docked and discharged between August 23 and 29, it did not change its port of origin from Point Fortin. It was on August 29 and September 2 saying it was heading back to Port of Spain with the same August 3 LNG cargo. Previously, Iberica Knutsen has been consistent with its deliveries to Argentina, having delivered from the same source and to the same destination on July 20 (after 16 days) and on June 15 (also after 16 days).

- Gibraltar (1 cargo):
* British Trader, which last reported its position September 12, is believed to have delivered an LNG cargo to Gibraltar or somewhere in Europe for re-sale, after leaving Point Fortin August 20. Since September 7, it was reporting irregular and illogical destinations and ports of origin, lending support to the belief it was trying to distort marine tracking. It had, on August 20, declared Gibara, Cuba (where there appears to be no re-gasification terminal) as its destination but was pointing to Europe. As at September 12, it was saying it was returning to Trinidad and Tobago without delivery of its LNG cargo of August 20. For its declared ports of origin and destinations and ETAs to make sense, it would have had to cross the Atlantic, go to Europe and then return to Trinidad without discharging its LNG cargo.

- USA (1 cargo):
* BW GDF Suez Boston, which last reported its position September 13, is believed to have delivered a cargo to Boston on September 9, in line with its declared ETA, after leaving Point Fortin September 1. As at August 27, the vessel was saying its port of origin was Puerto Rico with a departure date of August 27, but it appeared far south of Puerto Rico as if it were coming from Trinidad. Its August 27 port of origin did not make sense because it would have had to have gone south of Puerto Rico and then turned around to head back north.

- Greece (1 cargo):
* Gaslog Greece (Deadweight: 94,400 tons), which last reported its position September 7, is believed to have delivered an LNG cargo to Greece on September 4, after leaving Point Fortin August 23.



DELIVERED IN AUGUST 2016: 13 cargos

- Argentina (1 cargo):
* Bilbao Knutsen, which last reported its position August 29, is believed to have delivered an LNG cargo to Argentina Around August 20, after leaving Point Fortin July 29. As at August 29, it was back in Point Fortin for a refill.

- Romania (1 cargo):
* Celestine River, which last reported its position August 29, declared Egypt on August 21 as its destination with an ETA of August 25, after leaving Point Fortin with an LNG cargo August 8. It had returned to T&T since July 27 and apparently awaited instructions until it left August 8. As at August 23, it had changed its declared destination to Romania with the same August 25 ETA. It is believed to have delivered to either Romania or Egypt around August 25.

- Chile (2 cargos):
* Madrid Spirit, which last reported its position August 26, is believed to have delivered an LNG cargo to Chile, after leaving Point Fortin with an LNG cargo August 5. At Punta Arenas (Chile) it appeared not to have docked in Chile but merely changed its port of origin around August 18.
* Gaslog Singapore (Deadweight: 82,339 tons), which last reported its position August 23, is believed to have delivered an LNG cargo to Chile, around August 18, after leaving Point Fortin July 31. Instead of via the new expanded Panama Canal, the vessel passed through Chile to get to the Pacific and was last seen heading north. Its port of origin was Peru with an August 25 date, which did not make sense as August 23 was the last time it reported its position.

- Spain (1 cargo):
* SCF Melampus (Deadweight: 93,500 tons), which last reported its position August 16, delivered an LNG cargo to Spain August 16, having left Point Fortin with July 23.

* Gaslog Saratoga, which last reported its position August 19, delivered an LNG cargo to the U.S. after swinging around from Escobar, Argentina, where it had arrived with an LNG cargo from Point Fortin whence it had departed July 13. On August 14, it was in the Caribbean Sea aiming for and had declared the U.S. as its destination with its port of origin as "Point Fortin" with July 13 as its departure date. Sabine Pass, an LNG terminal from where the US exports LNG http://www.lngworldnews.com/europe-ge...ort-cargo/ was its declared destination.

* Gaslog Savannah, which last reported its position August 9, is believed to have resold the LNG cargo it took from Point Fortin July 26 to Jordan where it has declared as its destination with an ETA of Aug. 11, which as at August 13 appeared fulfilled. It slowed off the coast of Egypt without mooring around August 7. It had earlier declared Oman as its destination with an ETA of August 7.

* British Merchant, which last reported its position August 7, crossed the new Panama Canal on its way to Manzanillo, Mexico where it delivered an LNG cargo August 6, (exceeding the initial ETA of August 2), after loading and leaving Point Fortin July 21.
