German FSRU terminal operator offers regas capacity

State-owned LNG terminal operator Deutsche Energy Terminal is offering short-term and long-term regasification capacity at its FSRU-based terminals in Germany.

DET announced on Wednesday the new marketing round for new regasification capacities (including storage and sendout) for its terminals.

In four digital marketing campaigns, the first of which begins on June 13 with an auction of short-term capacities, market participants can acquire capacities for the Brunsbüttel and Wilhelmshaven 1 terminals, it said.

The first Wilhelmshaven LNG terminal features the 170,000-cbm Hoegh Esperanza and the LNG terminal in Brunsbüttel features the 170,000-cbm Hoegh Gannet. This FSRU will move to a new dedicated jetty in the port.

DET previously planned to hold both short-term and long-term capacity auctions for all four of its FSRU-based terminals in April this year, but it postponed the auctions due to delays in project commissioning for its Stade and the second Wilhelmshaven terminal.

Last year, DET allocated 60 regasification slots for 2024 at its operational Brunsbüttel and Wilhelmshaven 1 terminals and it also allocated 11 regasification slots at its upcoming FSRU-based LNG import terminal in Stade.

DET to launch two terminals this year

In March, the 174,000-cbm FSRU Energos Force arrived at the AVG jetty in Germany’s Stade and is yet to receive a commissioning cargo.

A spokesman for DET recently told LNG Prime that there is still work that must be carried out on the terminal before DET can begin commissioning of the facility.

As per the second facility in Wilhelmshaven, DET expects to launch this FSRU-based LNG import terminal in the second half of this year.

Excelerate’s 138,000-cbm FSRU Excelsior arrived at the Navantia yard in El Ferrol, Spain last year for a planned stopover prior to its job in Wilhelmshaven. The FSRU is still located there.

Long-term capacity

Following the completion of auctions for the short-term capacity, market participants will have the opportunity to purchase long-term capacity from 2025 to 2027, DET said.

DET intents to offer long-term capacity for the delivery of LNG to each of the four terminals.

This will be possible for the first time in the period from June 17 to 28.

DET plans to market the remaining capacities in July, it said.
