Elengy has resumed the gas send-out in to the transmission grid from the Montoir-de-Bretagne LNG terminal.
The schedule of flows and stocks at the terminal as well as the vessel programme are regularly updated on the corresponding pages.
The repair works of the gas pipe are now completed. Elengy's teams are starting the works to progressively resume the gas send-out into the transmission grid.
After detecting leak on the insulating joint in the gas pipe linking the LNG terminal to the transmission grid, Elengy, in accordance with its procedures, informed the competent authorities. For safety reasons, Elengy decided to stop send-out into the transmission grid on 4 May.
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.
