13 LNG carriers in one month / 3 LNG cargo transshipments in seven days / 10th transshipment since January 2018
Buoyed by a strong international liquefied natural gas (LNG*) market, the Montoir-de-Bretagne LNG terminal received 13 tankers for four unloadings, three reloadings and three transshipments of LNG cargo within a single month – a record for Europe. The week of August 15 included even more noteworthy accomplishments: Elengy’s teams completed three LNG transshipments within seven days, a first for a European LNG terminal. And that same week the terminal completed its tenth LNG transshipment since the beginning of the year, boosting it to first place in Europe in this area.
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.
During the first semester 2018, Montoir-de-Bretagne LNG terminal has handled one third of the LNG cargoes produced by Yamal LNG, and seven direct transshipments have been carried out at high flowrate during this period.
On ENGIE’s proposal, Elengy's board of directors decided to appoint Laurence Borie-Bancel as CEO of Elengy effective 1st June, succeeding Martin Jahan de Lestang, who has been appointed to other positions within ENGIE. Elengy belongs to the scope of gas infrastructures in France supervised by Didier Holleaux, Group Executive Vice President.
To support the sea transport industry in its efforts to combat climate change, Elengy and its subsidiary Fosmax LNG, owner of the Fos Cavaou LNG terminal, are adapting the terminal to offer a new LNG (*) bunker-vessel loading service.
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.
As part of the energy transition and given the strong demand for cleaner energy, Elengy and its subsidiary Fosmax LNG, owner of the Fos Cavaou LNG terminal, have recently decided to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker loading station at the Fos Cavaou terminal.
