With the ship-to-ship operation of 31 July 2020, OLT has reached 100 LNG discharges at FSRU Toscana terminal. 100 cargoes received from all over the world. OLT Terminal has received LNG from the main exporting countries such as: Algeria, Cameroon, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Nigeria, Norway, Peru, Qatar, Trinidad and Tobago, and the US, and from other European terminals (Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands). An important fact as evidence of the contribution of FSRU Toscana to the security and diversification of supply. The total quantity of LNG discharged so far is approximately 13.8 million m3. Since October 2018, the terminal has been working at 100% of capacity.
“We are particularly proud of this milestone,” said Giovanni Giorgi, Managing Director of OLT. “A significant achievement not so much for the number but above all for the way we achieved it. 100 operations carried out safely and in full respect of the environment. This thanks to the professionalism of our team, both of those who work at sea but also of the staff on the ground: without them all this could not have happened.”
“Obviously, this is a goal not an end point. As evidenced by the results achieved with the latest multi-year auctions, the outlook is also reasonably positive for the future. These results must encourage us to make this infrastructure increasingly competitive on the market, at the service of the country and fully sustainable with the territory in which we operate” continued Maurizio Zangrandi, Managing Director of OLT.
