Dutch Gate terminal in bio-LNG move

Dutch Gate terminal, a joint venture of Vopak and Gasunie, is getting into bio-LNG as it looks to further slash emissions.

The terminal located in the Port of Rotterdam said on Thursday it has secured certification from the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC).

This would allow Gate’s customers to import certified bio-LNG and distribute it towards shipping or trucks, it said.

“By using the same infrastructure, bio-LNG is fully interchangeable with traditional LNG and can further help to reduce CO2 emissions,” it said.

Gate’s commercial manager Stefaan Adriaens said in emailed comments to LNG Prime that the facility has several plans for bio-LNG due to an increasing interest from the market.

“The next step we are working on is to produce bio-LNG ourselves. This is possible by smartly using our existing liquefaction unit,” Adriaens said.

Launched in September 2011, Gate has an annual throughput capacity of 12 billion cbm of gas per year.

The terminal features three storage tanks, jetties, and loading sites for trucks.
