The 14.8mn t/yr Isle of Grain LNG terminal has booked another Russian delivery for next week, bringing the UK's scheduled February Russian receipts to three.

The 172,600m³ Nikolay Zubov is expected at Isle of Grain on 11 February, having cast off from Sabetta yesterday.

The tanker will follow the 172,600m³ Georgiy Ushakov, which unloaded its Yamal cargo at Isle of Grain yesterday. One other Russian delivery — on board the 172,600m³ Vladimir Voronin — is scheduled at the 4mn t/yr Dragon facility for 10 February. Russia already made up most of the UK's receipts last month, accounting for six of the seven in total.

Yamal shipments to Europe climbed on the year in January. But 66pc of the cargoes were transshipped, leaving European receipts at 1.08mn t of LNG, down from 1.24mn t a year earlier.

Yamal's fourth 940,000 t/yr liquefaction train was commissioned last month, which could provide scope for stronger exports.
