The Fos Tonkin LNG terminal
Inaugurated in 1972, the Fos Tonkin terminal, one of three LNG carrier terminals operated by Elengy, constitutes a genuine multi-modal platform in the western Mediterranean basin.
About Fos Tonkin
Furthermore the Fos Tonkin terminal is ideally located to supply LNG to a large number of western Mediterranean ports and islands.
This site provides the market with optimum flexibility for unloading or loading all types of LNG carriers, loading LNG tanker trucks and the regasification of LNG to introduce it into the transport network.

The Fos Tonkin offers
Elengy guarantees a reliable, diversified and flexible services offering at its Fos Cavaou LNG carrier terminal. Our site is not affected by tides thus allowing it to receive Medmax LNG carriers transporting up to 75,000m3 of LNG 24 hours a day. This thereby contributes to the growth in new LNG uses, which in turn contributes to accelerating the energy transition.
The monthly LNG reception capacities of each of the Fos-sur-Mer and Montoir-de-Bretagne LNG terminals are published on this site month by month, over a calendar year.
LNG Terminal capacities
The LNG carrier schedule of each of the Fos-sur-Mer and Montoir-de-Bretagne terminals is published on this site for the current year.
2023 and 2024 works planning programme
Safety is a constant priority for the operations undertaken at our terminals.
Therefore, to maintain a high level of reliability at our facilities, maintenance works are undertaken each year.
In order to access the Fos Tonkin terminal, all LNG tankers must be approved, in accordance with Annex 2 of the access contract.
This approval is necessary for LNG tankers coming to the terminal for the first time.

Today, Elengy offers a range of solutions for the flourishing market in LNG fuel, and more generally road-transported LNG.
There is a section dedicated to the small-scale LNG within the List of Interested Parties. It includes the names of companies active on our terminals and wishing to have their names published.
