A new cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Russia's Novatek arrived in the Lithuanian port of Klaipeda on Friday, marking the 49th such shipment in the outgoing gas year, writes LETA/BNS.

The Coral Favia gas carrier came from Russia's Baltic Sea port of Vysotsk, where Novatek has a LNG facility, and docked at the Klaipeda LNG terminal's FSRU Independence on Friday morning, according to the vessel tracking websites Marinetraffic.com, Vesselfinder.com and Myshiptracking.com. 


Another tanker of this size is currently on its way from Vysotsk to the Lithuanian port.


The schedule of Klaipedos Nafta, the terminal's operator, shows that gas carriers are to deliver 10,000 cubic meters of LNG each on Friday and Monday.  


The Klaipeda terminal has also handled 18 large LNG shipments from Norway and four large cargoes from the US in the gas year that started in October 2019. Each of them delivered around 140,000 cubic meters of LNG on average.


Klaipedos Nafta says that Norwegian cargoes make up around 67% of all LNG shipments handled by the terminal. US cargoes account for some 18%, and Russian cargoes, for around 14%.
