Montoir-de-Bretagne LNG terminal breaks European records

Published by
LNG Industry,


Elengy's Montoir-de-Bretagne LNG terminal (France) has reached three separate milestones in August.

The terminal received 13 tankers for four unloadings, three reloadings and three transshipments of LNG cargo within a single month – a record for Europe. The week of 15 August included saw Elengy’s teams complete three LNG transshipments within seven days, a first for a European LNG terminal. In the same week, the terminal completed its tenth LNG transshipment since the beginning of the year, boosting it to first place in Europe in this area.

The results come after a wave of investment to help modernise the facilities at the terminal. Increased collaboration with the operators at the Nantes-Saint-Nazaire port allowed two LNG carriers to moor simultaneously at the Montoir-de-Bretagne terminal’s two berths, in order to safely transfer cargo from one to the other.

Originally designed to unload and regasify LNG brought by ship from countries like Algeria, Nigeria, Norway or Qatar, Montoir-de-Bretagne now offers ship reloading services from its own LNG tanks and direct transshipments of cargo between two vessels. Since 2013, the site has included an LNG tanker truck loading station to supply industrial sites not connected to the grid. To meet growing demand for LNG, Elengy has expanded its daily tanker truck loading capacity by 50% since 2016.
