UK LNG imports jump 51% in Q1 贰零贰零
Imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the UK rose by 51% during the first quarter of 贰零贰零 compared to the previous year, Kallanish Energy reports.
Despite the sharp rise of LNG imports, total natural gas imports to the UK fell by 27% y-o-y during Q1 贰零贰零, from 15.29 Bcm to 11.23 Bcm. The decrease was attributed to lower demand, which fell by 4.6% y-o-y during the quarter, despite an increase in gas consumption.
LNG imports accounted for 49% of total UK gas imports during the first quarter, attributed to an increased diveRSIfication of gas import sources from other nations. UK gas imports are still primarily derived from Norway, while there was a decrease in imports from the Netherlands and Belgium, “due to the Bacton Zeebrugge Interconnector long term capacity contract terminating at the beginning of October 贰零壹八.”
Natural gas production rose marginally by 3.6% during Q1 贰零贰零, reveRSIng the downward trend recorded throughout 贰零壹九.
