Feb 18 (Reuters) - The British Merchant liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker has been diverted towards Canada's Canaport import terminal after initially being listed as bound for the UK's Isle of Grain port, shipping data showed.

The 130,000-cubic-metre-capacity tanker loaded cargo at Trinidad and was initially listed as due to arrive at Isle of Grain on Feb. 25, but is now listed as bound for Canaport, ship-tracking software on Reuters Eikon shows.
