Natural gas is principally composed of methane (CH4) and is found in natural reserves. As a primary energy source, it offers many qualities, and is the cleanest fossil fuel.
It is appreciated for its high calorific value, ease of use, and environmentally-friendly composition.
Natural gas is odourless, but an artificial odorant is added to enable detection in the event of a leak.
When natural gas burns it does not emit dust, soot or smoke, producing only water vapour and carbon dioxide, much like human breath, which is then transformed back into oxygen by plants. It is the most energy-efficient of all fossil fuels on the market.
An explosion of natural gas can only occur if the following three factors occur simultaneously:
Every care is taken in at LNG terminals to prevent these three things occurring at the same time.
For reasons of national security, our sites may not be visited by the public.

Corresponds to aggregated Shipper send-out allocations in kWh 25°C at the interface between the LSO and the TSO.
This information is provided at 7h00 LT for the preceding gas day.
Amount of gas in kWh 25°C belonged by the shippers in the tanks of the LNG terminal at the beginning of the day.
Corresponds to the aggregated Shipper daily send-out nominations in kWh 25°C at the interface point between the LSO and the TSO (PITTM).
Provisional data for each gas day of the coming month are provided on the 25th of the former month when the monthly programs are published by the LSO.
Then the provisional data for a given gas day is replaced by a definitive value at 18h00 LT on the day before.
Corresponds to the available commercial capacity of the LNG terminal, i.e non subscribed capacity, expressed as the daily average of the month, in kWh/J at 25°C.
This information is updated daily.
A technology that enables a single fuel source to produce both thermal energy (heat and/or cold) and electricity at the same time.
A power station that comprises a gas turbine generator whose exhaust powers a boiler. The steam from the boiler then drives a turbo-generator.
