Greece expands LNG capacity at Revithoussa terminal
Published by Will Owen,
Reuters is reporting that a new LNG tank has been inaugurated at the Revithoussa terminal in the Greek region of Attica.
This tank, Revithoussa’s third, will expand the terminal’s total LNG capacity by 73% to 225 000 m3. Its gasification rate will also be boosted by 40%.
The European Commission (EC) has released a statement welcoming these recent upgrades. €40 million from the EC’s Cohesion Policy funds helped this important energy project get off the ground, and the Commission is pleased to receive news of its continued progress in providing Greece with more affordable, secure and sustainable energy.
The commissioner for regional policy, Corina Cretu, said: “Thanks to this Cohesion Policy project, citizens are saving money in energy bills and Greece confirms its position as a gate for natural gas supply within a secure and interconnected European energy market.”
