GIE updates the GLE LNG New Services Inventory


Today 24 May 2017, GIE releases the updated version of the GLE LNG New Services Inventory thanks to all LNG terminal operators in the EU that contributed with key input to this GIE initiative.

 

The LNG New Services Inventory provides an overview of the new services offered by the LNG terminal operators to meet the market needs, especially focusing on small scale LNG. A short summary of the five new services is explained below:

 

  • Reloading: Transfer of LNG from the LNG reservoirs of the terminal into a vessel (large and small scale)
  • Transshipment: Direct transfer of LNG from one vessel into another (berth to berth or ship to ship)
  • Small scale ship loading: LNG is loaded on ships with a maximum capacity up to 30.000 m3 LNG
  • Truck loading: LNG is loaded on tank trucks which transport LNG in smaller quantities
  • Rail loading: LNG is loaded on rail tanks which transport LNG in smaller quantities

 

The updated 2017 LNG New Services Inventory shows the following developments on the LNG terminal services in the EU:

 

  • A new record in truck loading was broken in 2016: more than 49,000 trucks supplied more than 2.1 million m3 LNG, which is the equivalent of 1.2 billion m3 natural gas. In comparison with the previous year, an increase of 12% in truck loading was registered.
  • The number of reloading, the transfer of LNG from the LNG reservoirs of the terminal into a vessel, tripled in the past 6 years.
  • In several EU countries (France, the Netherlands, Poland, and Spain) rail loading is a service under study, whereas in France and the UK railway connection is already available.
  • Zeebrugge and Gate LNG terminals already performed small-scale ship loadings in 2016 and several other LNG terminals are developing the service. E.g. the Klaipeda LNG terminal in Lithuania performed its first small ship loadings in the beginning of 2017.
