Total Buys Engie’s LNG Business

Suez Canal Wants More LNG Transits
“The Suez Canal Authority (SCA) always pays attention to its users’ best interest, and has recently taken more steps towards becoming more competitive when compared to other routes. LNG vessels passing Suez Canal carrying cargo till 5% of its summer deadweight ton will be treated as ballast vessel rather than loaded one saving 15% of Suez Canal tolls,” the canal authority stated.
This means that, starting on July 1, the allowed residues of LNG cargo will be 5 percent of the vessel’s summer deadweight tonnage instead of 2 percent.
The Suez Canal has reported its highest annual revenue of USD 5.85 billion, an increase of 11.5 percent from the previous year.
