The Gate LNG terminal in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, has announced that it is adjusting its jetties so that it will be able to offer transhipment services in the second half of 2015.
During transhipment, LNG will be unloaded at one jetty and loaded at the other jetty without the LNG passing by the storage tanks.
The Gate terminal envisages a flow rate of 1000 up to 12500 m3/h.
Both jetties can serve LNG carriers from around 5000 m3 up to Qatar-max type of vessel.
In the past, the Gate terminal has increased its services to include truckloading, reloading and acceptance of small vessels. A dedicated small scale third jetty is also under construction.
With transhipment, Gate aims to strengthen its role in linking large scale markets and small scale LNG markets in North West Europe.
