An LNG cargo from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG plant in the United States is due to arrive in China on 11 November – the first US shipment to do so since Beijing imposed a 10% tariff on imports of US LNG a month ago, according to ship-tracking information.

The cargo was loaded on the Ribera Duero Knutsen carrier and is headed to Tianjin.
