Press Release

Availability and use of new LNG services offered by European LNG terminal operators have been increasing continuously


Today 18 March 2015 the update of the LNG New Services Inventory has been made available online. After the launch of the first LNG New Services Inventory in February 2014, all LNG terminals operators in the EU accepted the invitation of GIE to participate in this initiative.

 

The inventory provides an overview of the new services offered by the LNG terminal operators to meet the market needs. In addition, it has a special focus on small scale LNG. The 5 new services include reloading, transhipment, loading of bunkering ships, truck and rail loading.

 

The availability and use of these services from 2011 show the gaining importance of reloading and truck loading. The number of reloading, the transfer of LNG from the LNG reservoirs of the terminal into a vessel, quadrupled in the past 4 years. In 2014, with almost 14 million m3 LNG, the quantity reloaded was even six times higher compared to 2011.

 

While truck loading of LNG has had a long tradition on the Iberian Peninsula to supply communities in off-grid locations with natural gas, this service has become popular all over Europe. This is also due to the significant potential for reducing emissions by using LNG as fuel for heavy transport. In 2014, more than 42,000 trucks supplied almost 1.9 million m3 LNG, which is the equivalent of 1.14 billion m3 natural gas.

Note to Editors

 

Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE) is an association representing the interests of European natural gas infrastructure operators active in natural gas transmission, storage and LNG regasification. 17 European LNG terminal operators (LSOs) from 9 countries, operating around 90% of the existing LNG regasification capacity in the European Union are members of GIE. They are committed to promote the development of transparent and non-discriminatory access for LNG within a fully operational European internal market, underpinned by a stable and predictable regulatory framework.
