Molgas teams up with Enagas for El Musel LNG truck loading ops

Madrid-based small-scale LNG player Molgas teamed up with LNG terminal operator Enagas to complete the first truck loading operations at the El Musel LNG terminal in Gijon.

Molgas, owned by French private equity firm InfraVia Capital Partners, said in a statement on Wednesday that it has joined forces with Enagas to collaborate in the start-up of the El Musel terminal and it has completed the first end-customer tanker loadings at the facility.

Moreover, Molgas said that this collaborative effort is an “important” step forward, with a full process test.

“The operational excellence and innovative features of the new terminal and the extra capacity will add to the LNG network in Spain,” it said.

Molgas did not provide any additional information.

Earlier this month, the small-scale LNG player bunkered two newbuild LNG-powered coastal cruise ships owned by Norwegian shipping firm Havila Voyages at the Enagas-operated Cartagena regasification facility.

Molgas is working to further expand its operations as the demand for LNG continues to grow.

El Musel LNG terminal recently received first commercial delivery

On the other hand, Enagas recently announced the first commercial delivery to the El Musel LNG terminal.

Spanish power group Endesa brought the shipment from the US onboard the 2019-built 180,000-cbm, GasLog Warsaw.

In July, Enagas said that Endesa is the winner of a capacity allocation process for logistics services at the El Musel LNG terminal in Gijon.

Endesa began operations under the contract for the terminal’s logistics services on July 31.

The logistics services offered for this infrastructure include LNG unloading, storage, and also loading operations.

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

The facility 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.
