About the LNG reloading service

Launched for the first time in 2012 in our Montoir-de-Bretagne terminal, our reloading service is open to all clients having signed a Terminal Access Contract. Available at our three terminals - Montoir-de-Bretagne, Fos Tonkin and Fos Cavaou- this service allows our shippers to reload LNG that has previously been unloaded.

It can also offer the possibility of loading LNG having undergone tank transfer with a third-party shipper. Elengy operates high flow rates at Montoir-de-Bretagne and Fos Cavaou enabling a standard LNG vessel to be reloaded in just two days. These different streams offered by Elengy encourage the wider use of LNG in favour of the energy transition.

Nos contrats

The purpose of the Terminal Access Contract is to determine the conditions under which the operator undertakes to:
  • Receive vessels sent by the shipper at the terminal’s berth.
  • Unload or reload the cargo from said vessels
  • Store the quantities of LNG unloaded
  • Regasify these quantities of LNG and transfer them to the network
  • For shippers who so desire, enable the quantities of LNG stored to be traded.
