SUBSCRIBER NOTE: Platts adds FOB Murmansk LNG netback

S&P Global Platts has added an LNG FOB Murmansk netback assessment as well as a freight route cost from Murmansk to Zeebrugge from November 1, 2019

Platts will calculate the FOB Murmansk netback using a new freight route cost from Murmansk to Zeebrugge and Platts existing delivered ex-ship (DES) Northwest Europe (NWE) LNG assessment.

The voyage length for the Murmansk-Zeebrugge route will be four days one-way. The assumed load port cost will be $130,000. The bunker fuel basis for this route will be Antwerp.

The specification of the modern conventional TFDE vessel (including consumption, capacity and boil-off) are as follows: Vessel capacity: 155,000-180,000 cu m standardized to 165,000 cu m Consumption: 100mt fuel oil-equivalent per day at 17 knots Boil-off: 0.12%/day while laden, 0.09% while ballasting.

The rest of the vessel specifications and assumptions will be as per existing methodology. The new FOB Murmansk and Murmansk-Zeebrugge assessments will be published in Platts LNG Daily, Platts Natural Gas Alert (NGA) page 1025, as well as Platts LNG Alert from November 1, 2019.
