Russian LNG

The Russian gas has finally arrived in Boston.

A giant tanker of liquefied natural gas that unloaded at the Distrigas terminal in Everett over the past two days included fuel from a plant in Siberia owned by a Russian company under US sanctions.

Located far above the Arctic Circle, the $27 billion Yamal gas plant opened in December, and some of its first output ended up in the cargo that will be used to heat homes and generate electricity in the Boston area.
