Deputy head of Gazprom questions the U.S. LNG delivery to Portugal

There was a lot of noise about the first American LNG delivery to Europe but the tanker made just a short stop to check the price and went on to some other destination, said deputy head of Gazprom Alexander Medvedev. Mr Medvedev does not believe LNG was unloaded in Sines, Portugal.

Remarkably, on May 2, 2016, Portuguese operator REN published a press release "Sines terminal is the first in Europe to receive LNG from the United States of America" describing the arrival and unloading of LNG tanker Creole Spirit.

According to Sistema de Informação de Mercados de Energia, the tanker was unloaded on April 26-27. Sines Port Authority reported that Creole Spirit came from and left for Sabine Pass. This is information from free public services.

Apparently, Mr Medvedev was confused by the second trip of Creole Spirit from Sabine Pass in early May.
