Panama Canal aims to double capacity for LNG vessels

Thursday, October 5, 2017

The Panama Canal Authority said it is working with LNG shippers towards doubling the capacity set aside for LNG vessels by next October.

The authority is working towards allowing two LNG vessels a day to transit the canal, from the single slot currently available. "Currently all LNG transits are limited to daylight hours. We are working towards lifting some transit restrictions by the third quarter of next year," the authority said.
