Gasunie resumes Eemshaven LNG sendout, expects LNG carrier on February 13

Dutch natural gas firm Gasunie has resumed sendout to the grid from its LNG import hub in the port of Eemshaven.

A Gasunie spokeswoman told LNG Prime that the firm started up the facility on February 3 and resumed sendout to the grid on Monday.

Gasunie previously said it would not be able to send natural gas from the terminal to the grid during January 13-30 due to an outage at RWE and the unavailability of the heat connection.

Work on restoring the heat connection took longer than expected and Gasunie said last week it expected to resume sendout to the grid on Febuary 6.

RWE operates a power plant in the port of Eemshaven which supplies heat to the terminal needed

The heat connection is needed as sea water is too cold during this time of the year to be used for the regasification process.

LNG carrier to arrive next week

According to the Gasunie spokeswoman, the next LNG carrier would arrive in Eemshaven on February 13.

The 2013-built 155,000-cbm LNG carrier, GasLog Seattle, is on its way to Eemshaven with a scheduled arrival date of February 13, its AIS data provided by VesselsValue shows.

GasLog Seattle is carrying a cargo from Venture Global LNG’s Calcasieu Pass facility in Louisiana, the data shows.

Gasunie expects to reach full operations at the LNG hub in Eemshaven with a capacity of 8 Bcm on March 1.

The terminal features two chartered FSRUs and they include the 26,000-cbm barge-based FSRU Eemshaven LNG and the 170,000-cbm Energos Igloo.

It started delivering regasified LNG to the Dutch grid in September and has up to date received eleven cargoes.

Prior to this second shutdown, Gasunie performed maintenance work at the facility during November and December last year.

During the first shutdown, the company completed the connection between the two chartered FSRUs and finalized laying of the heat connection.

Shell previously booked 4 bcm while Czech utility CEZ took 3 bcm of the Eemshaven terminal’s total capacity. France’s Engie secured the remaining 1 bcm of capacity.
