Reuters is reporting that LNG tankers carrying US LNG are bound for China after an announcement from Beijing stating that it would be granting tax waivers to some importers.
This is the first time that US LNG shipments will be made to China since March 2019, due to the long-standing trade war between the two countries which saw China raise tariffs on US LNG to 25%.
