Gasunie subsidiary EemsEnergyTerminal has sold the remaining capacity of the LNG terminal in Eemshaven to ENGIE SA who purchased the last 1 billion cubic metres. Earlier contracts were signed with ČEZ of Czech Republic and Shell Western LNG. The total 8 billion cubic metres available in the Eemshaven is now 'sold out'. The first delivery of LNG through the terminal is expected to take place as early as mid-September.With these new capacities added to its existing LNG portfolio, ENGIE -through its business entity ‘Global Energy Management & Sales’- will strengthen its energy diversification strategy and increase its ability to supply LNG toward Europe.Until this year, the Netherlands only had an LNG terminal in the port of Rotterdam. The expansion in Eemshaven and the optimisation of the Rotterdam terminal will double the LNG import capacity. The new LNG terminal in Eemshaven will consist of two Floating Storage and Regasification Units the Exmar S188 and the Golar Igloo. They are expected to arrive at Eemshaven in early September. Over the next five years, the floating terminal will convert liquid natural gas into gaseous natural gas in Eemshaven, after which it can be fed into the national natural gas network. In total, an additional 8 billion cubic metres of natural gas can be brought to the Netherlands.
