In 2019, Elengy and its subsidiary Fosmax LNG reported record activity exceeding the very good figures of 2018 :
• 250 vessels berthed at our terminals, 35 more than 2018,
• 158 TWh of natural gas delivered to the network, an overall increase of 49% compared to 2018,
• 21 LNG transshipment operations (berth to berth) and 7 reloading of standard LNG carriers (from shore to vessel),
• 8 648 LNG trucks loaded, an increase of 48% over 2018.
In 2019, the Montoir-de-Bretagne LNG terminal reached new records:
• 130 vessels berthed (106 in 2018): 84 unloading operations, 1 ship reloading operations, 21 LNG transshipments and 3 other operations.
• 82.7 TWh of natural gas delivered to the network, an increase of 104% compared to 2018,
• 2 289 trucks loaded with LNG.
At Fos-sur-Mer on the Mediterranean coast, for Fos Cavaou and Fos Tonkin LNG terminals, 2019 figures comprised:
• 120 vessels berthed: 114 unloading operations (99 in 2018), 6 ship reloading operations,
• around 75.5 TWh of natural gas delivered to the network, an increase of 15% compared to 2018,
• 6 359 trucks loaded, an increase of 83% compared to 2018.
In order to support the high demand, Elengy commissioned a loading station in Fos Cavaou in the autumn, with two loading bays.
Pioneering the LNG industry and terminal operator since 1965, Elengy has completed 9 805 unloading of LNG vessels. This represents around 10% of all LNG shipments ever delivered around the world since the start of the LNG industry.
This represents a total amount of 315 million tonnes of LNG from 15 different countries.
Since 1965, 261 different LNG carriers, more than one third of the world's fleet, have berthed at one of Elengy’s sites!
In December 2019, Elengy reached 10 000 calls at its terminals, all type of operations combined.
The LNG truck loading continues to growth strongly. The commissioning of a loading station with two bays at Fos Cavaou permit to increase the capacity already available at the Montoir-de-Bretagne and Fos Tonkin terminals.
In September 2019, Elengy loaded its 20 000th LNG truck since the service was launched in 2013.
These exceptional results illustrate the sustained level of activity in the global LNG market and Elengy's ability to meet its customers' expectations even more effectively.
The call for capacity subscription currently ongoing at Montoir-de-Bretagne will enter its final binding phase in October 2019.
It is a unique opportunity to gain direct access to up to 3.5 Bcm/year of firm and existing capacity from 1 October 2021 to 31 December 2035.
We are confident that Montoir-de-Bretagne is technically and economically one of the most relevant LNG terminals to match the increasing LNG import needs in Europe.
To date, Elengy has already received a tremendous level of interest from the market.
Hence, based on first commercial discussions, Elengy has decided to update the provisional commercial schedule as follows:
This agenda is subject to approval of the French Commission for Regulation of Energy, to be specified before the start of the binding period.
2018 was a record year for Elengy and its subsidiary Fosmax LNG:
• 215 vessels berthed at our terminals,
• 106 TWh of natural gas delivered to the network, an overall increase of 13 % compared to 2017,
• 21 LNG transshipment operations (berth to berth) and 19 reloading of standard LNG carriers (from shore to vessel),
• 5 843 trucks loaded, an increase of 50 % on 2017.
In a press release published on Tuesday, 20th November 2018, the Port of Marseille Fos announces that it has worked with the economic players in the LNG sector on the feasibility of an operational LNG fuelling solution in Marseille and Fos
Fos Tonkin LNG terminal now offers up to 20 LNG truck loading slots per day.
15 LNG carriers in one month / 6 LNG transshipments in three weeks
Pioneering the LNG industry and LNG terminal operator since 1965, Elengy has reached an impressive milestone in August 2018 with the successful call of the Golar Celcius at Montoir-de-Bretagne which is the 200th different LNG carrier to berth in one of Elengy’s LNG terminals. This represents more than one third of all LNG carriers ever built.
Direct transshipment at Montoir-de-Bretagne of an LNG cargo originated from Yamal between the ice-class LNG carrier Christophe de Margerie and the standard LNG carrier Grace Cosmos marks the start of the long-term contract signed in June 2015 with Novatek Gas & Power.
Starting today, Fos Tonkin LNG terminal increases the capacity of its LNG truck loading facility, from 12 to 16 trucks that can be loaded each day.
On January 10th, Montoir-de-Bretagne has received the ice-class LNG carrier Fedor Litke for an LNG transshipment operation with the standard LNG carrier LNG Jurojin.
In order to make its LNG terminals more and more attractive, Elengy acts now as a go-between for the shippers. Any market player can now advertises downstream services complementary to our regasification offer.
To meet the growing market demand for natural gas, the Montoir-de-Bretagne LNG terminal is adapting its facilities. From now on, it offers its customers more flexibility with a capacity increased to 18 LNG trucks loading per day, compared with 12 previously. An increase in capacity made possible especially by development work on the station and optimization of the loading schedule.
