Hoegh Gallant LNG carrier departs Egypt

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker, Hoegh Gallant, has left its mooring in Egypt, where it had been used as a floating import terminal since 2015.

The tanker has set course for the U.S. Sabine Pass production facility, according to Refinitiv Eikon data.

Hoegh LNG said earlier this week it had agreed to an early termination of a contract with Egypt to use Hoegh Gallant as a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) and would instead charter the vessel to a third party as a regular LNG carrier.
