France’s Le Havre FSRU to get fifth LNG cargo

France’s Le Havre FSRU-based LNG import terminal, operated by TotalEnergies, is about to receive the fifth LNG cargo since its launch in October last year.

The 2009-built, 165,500-cbm, Seapeak Magellan, is scheduled to arrive at the Le Havre port on January 19 to unload its LNG cargo sourced from Freeport, USA, a spokesman for TotalEnergies told LNG Prime on Thursday.

Prior to this shipment, the FSRU received four LNG cargoes in November and December.

Out of these four LNG cargoes, one was sourced from Norway while three came from the USA, according to the spokesman.

TotalEnergies LNG Services France (TELSF), a unit of TotalEnergies, announced on October, 2023, that the 2010-built 145,130-cbm FSRU, Cape Ann, had started delivering natural gas supplies to the grid.

The French energy giant charters this 283 meters long FSRU from Hoegh LNG, which has a 50 percent stake in Cape Ann, and Japan’s MOL, which owns a 48.5 percent stake. In addition, Tokyo LNG Tanker holds a 1.5 percent share in the unit.

The 2022-built 174,000-cbm, Minerva Amorgos, delivered the first LNG shipment to Cape Ann on November 6 from Equinor’s Hammerfest LNG export plant in Norway.

After that, the 2023-built 174,000-cbm, Maran Gas Marseille, delivered the second shipment from Sempra Infrastructure’s Cameron LNG export plant in Louisiana, followed by two more cargoes form the US.

Regas slots on offer

TotalEnergies has contracted 50 percent of the Le Havre terminal’s annual capacity of around 5 billion cubic meters, to supply it with LNG from its global portfolio.

The spokesman said that TELSF is currently marketing available spot slots in February, March, and May 2024 through auction process using PRISMA platform.

According to the platform, TELSF is offering in total six slots, or two each in February, March, and May.

This is France’s first FSRU-based facility and the fifth LNG import terminal.

France hosts four onshore LNG terminals with a capacity of about 26.8 mtpa.

These are Elengy’s Fos Tonkin, Fos Cavaou, and Montoir-de-Bretagne LNG terminals, and also the Dunkirk LNG facility.
