UPDATE UPDATE ANOTHER US FRACKED GAS CARGO DUE OCT 31st
Seems like there may be a political agreement in the UK to buy much more expensive US fracked gas and make the consumer pay.
The giant Shell-chartered 174,000-cbm LNG carrier Pan Europe is expected to arrive at the Dragon LNG facility in the Port of Milford Haven on October 31, according to the port’s shipping data.The tri-fuel diesel electric LNG carrier Pan Europe previously loaded a cargo at Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction and export facility in Louisiana, the data shows.
The UK’s Dragon LNG terminal has received a <a href=”https://www.lngworldnews.com/sabine-pass-cargo-heading-for-dragon-lng/”>LNG </aFracked Gas cargo from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass export facility in Louisiana, USA.
The gigantic new Sabine Pass plant exports nearly 100% Fracked Gas sourced by a fast growing web of dangerous pipelines to the hundreds of thousands of Fracking wells blighting the USA.
Destinations of US Fracked Gas as LNGChina was the biggest buyer of US Fracked gas after S Korea, (see chart) , with imports set to triple in the next few years in coal substitution. But in response to the 3rd round of US trade war tariffs on $200bn of goods China has slapped a 10% tax on US Fracked Gas imports, with a provision that it could rise in line with US import taxes.

Ironically in May 2018 China had offered to close the US trade gap with a huge increase in LNG imports. Now various reports suggest that Chinese imports of both oil and gas from the US neared zero in Sept 2018. Asia was the best market with higher prices. If the dispute continues Europe may receive even heavier pressure to import US Fracked gas.
As wide public solidarity has delayed and harassed the Fracking industry in the UK the Tory regime has bowed to US ‘Brexit blackmail’ and forced companies to accept more expensive US Fracked Gas. – “US forces EU into buying LNG – YouTube “
