German LNG Terminal Welcomes Further Planning for Temporary & Future-Proof LNG Terminal Facilities

Source: 5/5/2022, Location: Europe

German LNG Terminal GmbH is welcoming today's announcement by Economic Affairs and Climate Action Minister Robert Habeck on the status of the planning for the development of German energy import infrastructure in northern Germany.

German LNG Terminal Managing Director Dr Michael Kleemiß: "The rapid development of LNG infrastructure is an essential and necessary contribution to the diversification of energy imports and therefore to energy security in Germany, both via temporary floating terminal solutions (Floating Storage and Regasification Units - FSRUs) and future-proof, permanent import infrastructure, which we envisage will also supply increasingly climate-neutral energy sources. Our terminal therefore fits perfectly into the overall plans and will make a lasting contribution."

The planned terminal in Brunsbüttel is being built for the importation and onward distribution of LNG. It will include two LNG tanks, each with a capacity of 165,000 m³, which will enable flexible logistics for LNG storage and retrieval and an LNG regasification plant. The terminal will have throughput capacity of up to 8 billion Nm³ of natural gas per year, upscalable to 10 billion Nm³.

Under current conditions, completion is realistically expected in 2026. But all parties involved are working to further accelerate the project in compliance with all permitting and state aid requirements.

German LNG Terminal stressed once again that LNG will become "green" in the future by being produced on a biogenic or synthetic basis. The detailed planning about to take place will also consider the subsequent importation of hydrogen or hydrogen derivatives. Due to its location and industrial connections, the Brunsbüttel site is well placed to develop into an import hub for a northern German hydrogen economy. Synergies with neighbouring industries are being built up, so strengthening the Brunsbüttel site on Schleswig-Holstein's west coast for the long term.

German LNG and shareholders with many years of experience In March 2022, Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW) on behalf of the German government, the Dutch state-owned Gasunie LNG Holding B.V. and RWE signed a memorandum of understanding to construct and operate a multifunctional importation and distribution terminal for liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Brunsbüttel and a distribution terminal for liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Brunsbüttel. The LNG terminal will be staffed by Gasunie.

The choice of a shareholder structure with highly experienced companies is intended to ensure not only that the project is completed as quickly as possible, but also for the plant to be used for climate-neutral energy sources. It is planned to convert the terminal to import green hydrogen and hydrogen derivatives such as ammonia.
