LONDON, Nov 14 (Reuters) - Britain’s Grain liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal exported the highest ever daily amount of gas to the UK grid this week , marking record daily exports from a European LNG terminal, operator National Grid said on Thursday.
* The terminal on the Isle of Grain, in south-east England, exported 698 gigawatt hours (GWh) of gas into the country’s network on Wednesday, over 100 GWh more than its previous record and representing around a quarter of UK gas demand.
* “The record activity is due to a global LNG oversupply, which has seen significantly more cargos head for North West Europe,” said Nicola Duffin, Commercial Manager for Grain LNG.
* “We expect utilisation will remain high throughout the winter and beyond,” she said.
* LNG volumes sent to the UK gas system hit their highest levels since 2010 earlier in November.
