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.
Starting today, Fos Tonkin LNG terminal increases the capacity of its LNG truck loading facility, from 8 to 11 trucks that can be loaded each day.
Following large consultation of our clients and the last decision of the Regulator (CRE), the new French regulated LNG terminal access contracts have now been updated with substantial improvements.
