Everyone who knows LNG marine operations knows that reloading is not cheap. Ice rated vessels are not cheap as well and floating operations have a price tag too. Tell me again that this cheap LNG – oh I have forgotten to mention that the gas comes from a plant that has been built in one of the most inhospitable places on Earth. That’s not for free as well – but we like to like with our little stories that this is all super cheap. Why does this matter? Because one day someone will want to make a return on this and this someone won’t be mild-mannered when he finds out that this day might never come.
Several million tons of liquified natural gas were reloaded in course of few months in the waters outside Honningsvåg, northern Norway.
