Dutch Gate terminal resumes ops after maintenance

Dutch Gate LNG import terminal has resumed operations following a planned maintenance turnaround at the facility in the Port of Rotterdam.

Gate, a joint venture of Vopak and Gasunie, had started the maintenance turnaround on June 15. This marked the terminal’s first major maintenance since the launch of operations almost ten years ago.

All services including truck loading, send-out, and jetty operations have resumed on July 11 as planned, after 26 days of maintenance, Gate’s commercial manager Stefaan Adriaens told LNG Prime on Monday.

He added that the maintenance itself was oriented towards overhauling valves.

During the maintenance period, Gate also revealed it had received its first carbon-neutral LNG cargo.

France’s TotalEnergies and Austria’s OMV delivered the LNG shipment from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass terminal on May 5.

In addition, Gate recently said it had taken a final investment decision to increase regasification capacity.

The LNG facility plans to boost its send-out capacity for about 0.5 Bcm per annum to a total of 12.5 Bcm per year.

The additional send-out capacity would become available as of October 1, 2024.
