Dutch Gate plans maintenance in May

Dutch Gate LNG terminal in the port of Rotterdam, owned by Gasunie and Vopak, plans to conduct scheduled maintenance in May.

Starting on Monday, May 6 at 06:00 hours CET, the terminal’s maintenance will take place during three gas days, including May 6, 7, and 8, according to Gate.

“During this period, the terminal’s sendout capacity will be reduced to a maximum of around 32,000 nm3/hour, approximately 370 MWh/hour,” it said.

Vessel discharging and loading operations and truck loading operations will not be impacted.

“The curtailment in sendout capacity will end on Thursday May 9, 2024 at 06:00 hours CET,” Gate said.

Launched in September 2011, the terminal has a nameplate capacity of 12 Bcm or 8.8 mtpa of LNG, three LNG storage tanks with a capacity of 540,000 cbm, three truck loading bays, and three jetties, including one small-scale jetty.

Following modifications, Gate managed to add 4 bcm of capacity on an interruptible basis, available to users already having a position in Gate.

Gate’s current users include Shell, Uniper, OMV, and Glencore. Last year, BP and PetroChina booked capacity at Gate as part of the expansion project, while ConocoPhillips secured capacity from September 2031.

Vopak and Gasunie took a final investment decision in August 2023 to build the fourth LNG tank with a capacity of 180,000 cbm and to add 4 Bcm of additional regasification capacity.

Last year, the terminal regasified 14.35 Bcm, well above its nameplate capacity, and handled record 328 vessels last year.
