Elengy has reached a milestone at one of its LNG terminals: for the first time in France, an ISO-container loaded with liquefied natural gas (LNG) at Elengy’s terminal in Fos Cavaou was transported by rail from the Miramas platform in the South of France and delivered to a service station near Milan, in Italy.
Elengy and its subsidiary Fosmax LNG are now launching a call for capacity subscriptions at Fos Cavaou LNG terminal (“Open Season Fos Cavaou 2021”)
The Open Season Fos Cavaou 2021 is initiated in response to a high level of market interest expressed over the past few months, and aims to make available additional primary capacity achieved through technical & regulatory debottlenecking, as well as capacity extension beyond 2030.
On 3rd March 2021, Elengy, a GRTgaz subsidiary part of the ENGIE, unloaded its 10,000th cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG). Since the first delivery at its Le Havre LNG terminal in 1965, the world's LNG pioneer has unloaded 326 million tonnes of LNG, about 10% of all LNG cargoes that have been delivered worldwide and which represents the equivalent of Europe's gas supply over one year. After Le Havre, it is up to the three terminals at Fos Cavaou, Fos Tonkin and Montoir-de-Bretagne to ensure the safe unloading of LNG, thus securing the diversification of gas supplies to France and Europe.
In 2020, Elengy and its subsidiary Fosmax LNG met their contractual commitments despite the health crisis. The business continuity plans implemented at the start of containment in March 2020 ensured the protection of employees, the continuity of service of the facilities in complete safety, and provided customers with the best possible support in terms of commercial programming.
In an expanding global liquefied natural gas (LNG) market, Elengy is proud to launch the "Open Season Fos Cavaou". This commercial operation represents a very attractive opportunity for LNG market players to subscribe long-term regasification capacity with a major operator, in a strategic location on the Mediterranean coast, in the heart of the industrial zone of the port of Marseille-Fos.
Elengy, GRDF, GRTgaz, Storengy et Teréga join the Oil & Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP) 2.0, a partnership launched by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) with the support of the European Commission. The OGMP's objective is to provide a framework to the companies of the oil and gas sectors for their efforts to reduce the methane emissions generated by their activity. The main French gas infrastructure operators jointly decided to partner with this initiative to highlight the progress already made by their industry and raising their objectives in this regard. They target an overall 45% reduction in methane emissions from infrastructure between 2016 and 2025.
In today’s sanitary backdrop, Elengy's teams remain mobilized to guarantee the protection of all and ensure the continuity of activities essential to the supply of natural gas to France and Europe.
Since the end of October, Elengy has reinforced its protecting measures against Covid-19 and adapted its organization to enable employees and service providers to ensure business continuity in compliance with health regulations.
Services to ships and tankers have been maintained, as have most of the construction sites and work on the LNG terminals.
Since the beginning of October, Elengy has been able to offer its customers one hundred daily LNG tanker loading slots.
At Fos Cavaou, we have just reached the station's rated capacity of 40 trucks per day, just one year after it began commercial operations on October 16.
