France is set to receive two first ever LNG cargoes from Indonesia and the United Arab Emirates (26/10/2022).
The cargo from Indonesia is currently onboard the Hoegh Galleon while the cargo from Das Island is onboard the Ob River.
This is part of a growing trend of rare Pacific basin cargoes being exported into Northwest Europe on the back of record-high gas prices in the region.
Until now, most of the cargoes delivered into Europe was mainly from the Atlantic Basin and Qatar.
Only last week, the UK received a rare LNG cargo from Chile.
The Ob River cargo was likely sold to EDF or Total.
