The Open Season Fos Cavaou 2021 was initiated in response to a high level of market interest, and aims to make available additional primary capacity achieved through technical & regulatory debottlenecking, as well as capacity extension beyond 2030 until 2045 or more.

After the success of the non-binding call for interest, a primary capacity of 2.5 Bcm per year from January 2025 onwards is made available within the frame of the Open Season Fos Cavaou 2021. A subscription window for the binding commitments of the parties will be held in September 2022. 

Open Season Fos Cavaou 2021 offers a very attractive opportunity for shippers looking to secure unloading, loading and multimodal LNG capacities with a major operator, whilst enjoying a strategic location on the Mediterranean coast in an isolated dock within the industrial area of the Port of Marseille-Fos.

Fos Cavaou, at the crossroads of maritime routes and major gas infrastructures, offers a privileged access to all European gas markets and the small-scale potential in a key Mediterranean location.
