A LNG cargo from the U.S. has arrived in China, the first such cargo since Beijing imposed a tariff on U.S. imports, shipping data from Refinitiv Eikon showed on Nov. 12.
The cargo was shipped on the tanker Ribera Duero Knutsen from the Sabine Pass terminal operated by Cheniere Energy.
It arrived at the Zhejiang Ningbo LNG terminal in China on Nov. 11, the data showed.
This is the first U.S. LNG cargo to be shipped to China since Sept. 10, according to the data. China imposed a 10% tariff on U.S. LNG in September.
The pipeline system is a key transporter of Canadian crude from northern Alberta to refineries in the U.S. Midwest.
Magellan has not made a final decision to proceed with the project. It said in March it expected the pipeline to come into service in late 2020 with an initial capacity of about 300,000 barrels per day.
If demand picks up, Canadian pipeliner says it could seek approval again for the COLT project.
