Pilot Service Into Port Arthur Suspended Amidst Fog, Resuming by Feb 12th; Two Ships at SPL
Criterion Research February 11, 2019 -
According to Moran Shipping, pilot service into Port Arthur was suspended on February 10, 2019, at 2220 due to dense fog in the channel. This follows two weeks of intermittent delays due to fog, which was the reason Sabine Pass gas receipts dropped so dramatically last week. According to the fog forecast, conditions are expected to clear by Tuesday, February 12, 2019, and remain so through the next week.
Currently, there are two LNG tankers at the facility, on which arrived on 2/9 and the other on 2/10.
