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.
Elengy’s Montoir-de-Bretagne terminal has just received for the first time a Q-Max, the largest LNG carrier in the world. 345 m long (more than the Eiffer Tower ) and 54 m wide, the Al Mayeda ship from Qatar (hence the Q of Q-Max) carries up to 267,000 m3 of liquified natural gaz (LNG), approximately ten times the yearly residential energy consumption of the Nantes metropolitan area.
LNG is the cleanest of the fossil fuels. In the context of the current energy transition set by the European Commission, it represents an excellent alternative for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and combating global warming. This is why Elengy continues to develop its services and adapt its infrastructures to meet the ever-increasing demand for LNG, whether as fuel for maritime and heavy road transport or as an off-grid energy solution.
For the first time, the Elengy teams working at the 3 LNG terminals loaded a total of more than 1,000 LNG tanker trucks in a single month. A busy summer in activity that augurs well for next winter.
Congratulations to the teams mobilized to make this new record possible!
An affiliate of Qatar Petroleum and the French LNG terminal operator Elengy, a subsidiary of ENGIE Group, entered into a long-term agreement for LNG receiving, storage and regasification services at the Montoir-de-Bretagne LNG Terminal in France. Under the agreement, Qatar Terminal Limited (QTL) - a subsidiary of Qatar Petroleum - will subscribe to the equivalent of almost 3 million tons per annum of the terminal’s throughput capacity for a term up to 2035.
Elengy has just acquired Total’s shares in Fosmax LNG, the company that owns the liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal at Fos Cavaou. Elengy now owns 100% of its three LNG terminals: Fos Cavaou, Fos Tonkin and Montoir-de-Bretagne. Until now Fosmax LNG was owned 72.5% by Elengy and 27.5% by Total Gaz Electricité Holding France (TGEHF).
