Flogas Britain has announced that it has been offered the ‘first-fill’ from the Isle of Grain LNG terminal in Kent, UK. The Isle of Grain facility is owned by the National Grid, and, with a total capacity of 15 million tpy, is the largest LNG terminal in Europe.
Flogas has been offered the first-fill from the terminal because of its status as the National Grid’s largest LNG customer.
Flogas will draw 20 t of LNG – which is the equivalent of 1/3 GW of energy – on the morning of 11 November 2015. Following this initial fill, Flogas will draw between 60 – 100 tpd of LNG, which will then be distributed to various industrial manufacturing sites in the UK.
The Head of LNG at Flogas, Rob McCord, said: “The Isle of Grain facility is vital to our strategic growth, and to the growth of the LNG sector in the UK. To be offered first-fill is a real honour and one in which we are extremely proud.
“The future for LNG is very bright in this country, and we’re looking forward to working with National Grid and the Isle of Grain team to ensure that Flogas continues to be at the heart of the UK LNG market.”
