Elengy’s three LNG import terminals in France will remain blocked for another week due to a strike against the government’s pension reform.
A spokeswoman for Elengy told LNG Prime via email late on Tuesday that the LNG import terminals remain blocked.
“The strike has been extended to March 28,” she said.
Elengy, a unit of Engie’s GRTgaz, said on March 6 that the company’s three LNG facilities will not provide any services due to the strike of its staff.
After that, the workers extended the strike until March 21 and now they voted to extend the strike for another week.
Elengy operates the Fos Tonkin and Fos Cavaou LNG terminals on the Mediterranean coast and the Montoir-de-Bretagne facility on the Atlantic coast.
France’s fourth LNG import terminal, Dunkirk LNG, resumed operations last week.
Dunkerque LNG, the operator of the Dunkirk LNG facility led by Belgium’s Fluxys, declared force majeure due to a strike on March 7 and restarted gas deliveries to the grid on March 17.
