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.
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!
The call for capacity subscription currently ongoing at Montoir-de-Bretagne will enter its final binding phase in October 2019.
It is a unique opportunity to gain direct access to up to 3.5 Bcm/year of firm and existing capacity from 1 October 2021 to 31 December 2035.
We are confident that Montoir-de-Bretagne is technically and economically one of the most relevant LNG terminals to match the increasing LNG import needs in Europe.
To date, Elengy has already received a tremendous level of interest from the market.
Hence, based on first commercial discussions, Elengy has decided to update the provisional commercial schedule as follows:
This agenda is subject to approval of the French Commission for Regulation of Energy, to be specified before the start of the binding period.
2018 was a record year for Elengy and its subsidiary Fosmax LNG:
• 215 vessels berthed at our terminals,
• 106 TWh of natural gas delivered to the network, an overall increase of 13 % compared to 2017,
• 21 LNG transshipment operations (berth to berth) and 19 reloading of standard LNG carriers (from shore to vessel),
• 5 843 trucks loaded, an increase of 50 % on 2017.
In a press release published on Tuesday, 20th November 2018, the Port of Marseille Fos announces that it has worked with the economic players in the LNG sector on the feasibility of an operational LNG fuelling solution in Marseille and Fos
Fos Tonkin LNG terminal now offers up to 20 LNG truck loading slots per day.
15 LNG carriers in one month / 6 LNG transshipments in three weeks
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.
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.
