Enagas launches binding open season for El Musel LNG services

Spanish LNG terminal operator Enagas has launched a binding open season for logistics services at its El Musel liquefied natural gas terminal in Gijon.

In April, Enagas said that the non-binding open season attracted a “high level of interest” from the sector with a total of 16 bids from different operators and that the firm plans to launch the LNG terminal in July.

The LNG terminal operator said in a statement that the binding-open season began on Monday and will last until June 31.

After that, the process will end with the allocation of long-term loading, unloading, and storage services at the El Musel LNG terminal.

According to Enagas, the facility could contribute up to 8 bcm of LNG capacity per year to Europe’s security of energy supply.

It will allow the berthing of vessels with a capacity of between 50,000 cbm and 266,000 cbm.

Also, the LNG terminal has two tanks each with a capacity of 150,000 cbm and two tanker loading bays with a capacity to load a maximum of 9 GWh/d, and a maximum emission capacity of 800,000 Nm3/h.

Earlier this year, Enagas also entered into a deal to sell a 25 percent stake in the LNG terminal to compatriot Reganosa for 95 million euros ($101.7 million).
