In 2020, Elengy and its subsidiary Fosmax LNG met their contractual commitments despite the health crisis. The business continuity plans implemented at the start of containment in March 2020 ensured the protection of employees, the continuity of service of the facilities in complete safety, and provided customers with the best possible support in terms of commercial programming.
In an expanding global liquefied natural gas (LNG) market, Elengy is proud to launch the "Open Season Fos Cavaou". This commercial operation represents a very attractive opportunity for LNG market players to subscribe long-term regasification capacity with a major operator, in a strategic location on the Mediterranean coast, in the heart of the industrial zone of the port of Marseille-Fos.
Elengy, GRDF, GRTgaz, Storengy et Teréga join the Oil & Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP) 2.0, a partnership launched by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) with the support of the European Commission. The OGMP's objective is to provide a framework to the companies of the oil and gas sectors for their efforts to reduce the methane emissions generated by their activity. The main French gas infrastructure operators jointly decided to partner with this initiative to highlight the progress already made by their industry and raising their objectives in this regard. They target an overall 45% reduction in methane emissions from infrastructure between 2016 and 2025.
In today’s sanitary backdrop, Elengy's teams remain mobilized to guarantee the protection of all and ensure the continuity of activities essential to the supply of natural gas to France and Europe.
Since the end of October, Elengy has reinforced its protecting measures against Covid-19 and adapted its organization to enable employees and service providers to ensure business continuity in compliance with health regulations.
Services to ships and tankers have been maintained, as have most of the construction sites and work on the LNG terminals.
Since the beginning of October, Elengy has been able to offer its customers one hundred daily LNG tanker loading slots.
At Fos Cavaou, we have just reached the station's rated capacity of 40 trucks per day, just one year after it began commercial operations on October 16.
Elengy’s Montoir-de-Bretagne terminal has just received for the first time a Q-Max, the largest LNG carrier in the world. 345 m long (more than the Eiffer Tower ) and 54 m wide, the Al Mayeda ship from Qatar (hence the Q of Q-Max) carries up to 267,000 m3 of liquified natural gaz (LNG), approximately ten times the yearly residential energy consumption of the Nantes metropolitan area.
LNG is the cleanest of the fossil fuels. In the context of the current energy transition set by the European Commission, it represents an excellent alternative for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and combating global warming. This is why Elengy continues to develop its services and adapt its infrastructures to meet the ever-increasing demand for LNG, whether as fuel for maritime and heavy road transport or as an off-grid energy solution.
For the first time, the Elengy teams working at the 3 LNG terminals loaded a total of more than 1,000 LNG tanker trucks in a single month. A busy summer in activity that augurs well for next winter.
Congratulations to the teams mobilized to make this new record possible!
