The Gate LNG terminal is to conduct a feasibility study for a fourth jetty to cater for upcoming demand, according to the terminal’s Commercial Manager Stefaan Adriaens.
During the Flame conference in Amsterdam, Stefaan noted this would be the second small-scale dedicated jetty. Earlier this month, Gate loaded two small LNG carriers simultaneously. The Cardissa LNG bunkering vessel was at the dedicated small scale jetty, while the ice-class Coral Energice was loaded at Jetty 1, one of the two jetties that can handle both small and large scale LNG carriers. Simultaneously a record daily number of 12 LNG trailers/containers were loaded.
Stefaan was reported to have said that, ever since the dedicated third small-scale LNG jetty became operational in 2016 and the additional two automated LNG truck loading bays in 2017, Gate has seen a steady increase in its small-scale LNG activities.
Owned by Gasunie and Vopak, Gate LNG terminal is one of Europe’s largest LNG terminals. It consists of three 180,000 cbm storage tanks.
