The Port of Rotterdam has reported a 91.3% increase in LNG throughout in 2015. In total, the port received 2.3 million t of LNG.
The sharp increase has been attributed to falling LNG prices in the Far East. These prices are now comparable to those in Europe, which has increased the trade and shipping volume of gas in the region.
In total, goods throughput in Rotterdam increased by a total of 4.9% to 466.4 million t in 2015. The growth was attributed almost entirely to the increased throughput of crude oil and oil products.
