Novatek’s Cryogas-Vysotsk resumed LNG deliveries to Finnish Gasum

(Gasum’s comment added, updated text)

MOSCOW, July 18 (Reuters) –

Located in the Baltic Sea, the Cryogas-Vysotsk plant, Russia’s largest producer of liquefied natural gas Novatek, has resumed deliveries to Finland’s Gasum, according to data from the Refinitiv Eikon terminal and a Gasum statement.

Finnish Gasum has stopped receiving LNG from the Novatek project since the end of April, and the head of Novatek, Russia’s largest LNG producer, Leonid Mikhelson, said that Gasum has some difficulties with mutual settlements under the contract concluded with Gazprom Export.

According to Refinitiv Eikon, the tanker Coral Energice delivered an LNG shipment from Cryogas-Vysotsk to the Finnish port of Tornio on July 3.

Gasum’s representative, in response to an inquiry from Reuters, confirmed the loading of a batch of LNG from Cryogaz-Vysotsk under the contract with Gazprom Export.

Novatek and Gazprom Export did not respond to Reuters’ inquiry.

The newspaper Kommersant, citing sources, reported that the cause of Gazprom’s problems may be a lawsuit filed by German Uniper against Gazprom Export. (Oksana Kobzeva, Vladimir Soldatkin. Editor Anastasia Lyrchikova)
