    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Tanker Gaselys with the first shipment of Russian liquefied natural gas (LNG) is in US waters, only a few miles away from its destination in Boston, ship tracking service Marine Traffic showed on Wednesday.

    On January 19, the tanker appeared to turn around in the middle of the Atlantic. France's Engie company that owns the tanker told Russia's RBC newspaper that the turn was made due to bad weather.

    Meanwhile, France received another LNG shipment from Yamal on January 10.

    Yamal LNG is expected to have three production lines with the capacity of 5.5 million tonnes of LNG and one extra line with the capacity of one million tonnes. The production of LNG began at one of the lines in December 2017.
