Elengy and Fosmax reach LNG reload milestone

Published by
LNG Industry,

Elengy has released a statement claiming that, alongside Fosmax, it has successfully reloaded 50 LNG cargoes since it began offering the service in April 2012. Altogether, these 50 cargoes have been delivered to 18 different countries.

In the statement, Elengy claims that this milestone reflects the adaptability of the Fos Cavaou and Montoir-de-Bretagne LNG terminals. The former commenced operations in 2010, has a capacity of 8.25 billion m3/yr and a storage capacity of 330 000 m3. The latter commenced operations in 1980, has a capacity of 10 billion m3/yr, and a storage capacity of 360 000 m3. They are located on the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts, respectively.

The company is able to reload LNG at the two terminals at a rate of 4000 m3/hr. At the company’s third terminal – Fos Tonkin – LNG can be reloaded at a rate of 1000 m3/hr.

The Montoir-de-Bretagne terminal was recently temporarily forced into automatic shutdown following a defect on a controller.
