Spain’s Enagas kicks off El Musel LNG recruitment process

Spanish LNG terminal operator Enagas said it has launched the selection process to hire professionals for its El Musel LNG hub in Gijon.

The company is looking for professionals specialized in operation and maintenance of energy facilities, among other profiles, it said in a statement on Tuesday.

According to Enagas, a team of around 50 professionals would work at the facility, but the project would also generate around 100 indirect jobs.

In July, the terminal received the administrative authorization from the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge.

This facility has been in hibernation since its completion in 2013.

Enagas says the logistical use of the El Musel plant could contribute up to 8 bcm of LNG capacity per year to the security of supply in Europe. This is particularly relevant in the current European context of reducing dependence on Russian gas, as envisaged in the European document REPowerEU, it said.

The El Musel terminal allows for the unloading of LNG carriers from various producer countries and the fast loading of ships to different European destinations, it said.

Moreover, the plant has a storage capacity of 300,000 cbm of LNG, divided into two tanks of 150,000 cbm each.

It also has berthing and unloading facilities designed for the largest LNG carriers with a capacity of up to 266,000 cbm.

Enagas operates a large network of gas pipelines and has four LNG import plants in Barcelona, Huelva, Cartagena, and Gijon. It also owns 50 percent of the BBG regasification plant in Bilbao and 72.5 percent of the Sagunto plant.
