About Fos Tonkin

The Fos Tonkin terminal has significant advantages allowing it to provide various retail LNG services to its clients: rail, road, waterways, marine. In addition to the unloading of LNG carriers and the loading of LNG tanker trucks, the terminal now offers a small-scale LNG carrier reloading service in keeping with the requirements of development of LNG as a fuel for the marine sector, a vector for decarbonisation.
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.
