Gasunie’s Eemshaven LNG hub gets second cargo

Gasunie’s new LNG import hub in the Dutch port of Eemshaven has received another cargo of liquefied natural gas following the arrival of the first shipment earlier this month.

The 174,000-cbm GasLog Georgetown arrived on Thursday at EemsEnergyTerminal, which consists of two chartered floating storage and regasification units or FSRUs.

The 2020-built LNG carrier, owned by GasLog and chartered by Cheniere, previously picked up the cargo at Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export plant in Texas, according to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue.

It will unload the shipment to New Fortress Energy’s 170,000-cbm Golar Igloo, which serves the Eemshaven hub along with Exmar’s 26,000-cbm barge-based FSRU Eemshaven LNG.

Gasunie’s new terminal with a capacity of about 8 bcm per year started delivering regasified LNG to the Dutch grid last week.

EemsEnergyTerminal, the first FSRU-based facility in the Netherlands, has been prepared in record time as the Netherlands and other European countries such as Germany look to slash reliance on Russian pipeline gas and boost energy security.

Gasunie expects the LNG terminal to reach full capacity by the end of November or beginning of December.

Shell booked 4 bcm while Czech firm ČEZ took 3 bcm of the terminal’s total capacity. France’s Engie secured the remaining 1 bcm of capacity.

ČEZ said in a statement on Tuesday that the cargo GasLog Georgetown delivered to Eemshaven would supply the Czech Republic.

The Eemshaven hub is the second LNG import facility in the Netherlands after the Gate terminal in Rotterdam, which is owned by Gasunie and Vopak.

This week, Gate received a permit to boost capacity up to 20 bcm per year with a fourth tank.
