The Gate terminal has announced that the first LNG transhipment was recently performed at its terminal in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
The LNG transhipment between the Arctic Discoverer and the Express was performed on 5 April 2016. Both of the carriers were scheduled to Dong Energy.
In February 2015, the Gate terminal, a subsidiary of Gasunie and Vopak, announced that it was adjusting its jetties so that it will be able to offer transhipment services, originally planned to start in 2H15.
During transhipment, LNG will be unloaded at one jetty and loaded at the other jetty without the LNG passing by storage tanks.
With transhipment, Gate aims to strengthen its role in linking large scale markets and small scale LNG markets in North West Europe.
