Panama Canal Working to Host More LNG Transits


The Panama Canal Authority is working to increase the number of LNG vessels that can transit the Neopanamax locks in a day.

The canal is bolstering its capacity amid the anticipated growth of natural gas exports from the United States, which is likely to increase LNG transits by 50 percent by September, according to Cheniere Energy.

“Cheniere is confident in the Panama Canal’s capabilities to adapt in addressing the needs of the growing LNG sector. The success of the Panama Canal is essential to the satisfaction of Cheniere’s customers and to the LNG industry as a whole,” Eric Bensaude, Managing Director, Commercial Operations and Asset Optimization for Cheniere, said.
