TGE Gas bags German LNG tank gig

Germany-based TGE Gas Engineering has secured a contract for the outer LNG tank design for the onshore LNG import terminal in Brunsbuettel, Germany.

Spanish engineering firm Sener awarded the deal to TGE Gas, a unit of China’s CIMC, according to a social media post by TGE Gas.

In October last year, a unit of French construction company Vinci and Sener won an engineering, procurement, and construction contract for the onshore LNG import facility which is being developed by German LNG Terminal.

The terminal located at Brunsbuettel at the mouth of the Elbe on the North Sea will have a production capacity of 8 billion cbm of natural gas per year, two storage tanks, and two jetties.

Sener subcontracted TGE Gas and its unit Technodyne International to design two full-containment tanks, each with a capacity of 165,000 cbm, and in accordance with German and international standards, TGE Gas said.

TGE Gas did not reveal any additional information regarding the deal.

Dutch gas grid operator Gasunie joined forces with the German government and RWE last year to build the Brunsbuettel LNG import terminal as part of the country’s plans to replace Russian pipeline gas and boost energy security.

Gasunie has a 40 percent operating stake in the facility. German energy firm RWE has a 10 percent stake in the facility and the government holds a 50 percent stake.

Also, US energy giant ConocoPhillips, UK’s Ineos, and RWE last year agreed to book long-term capacity at the planned onshore LNG import terminal in Brunsbuettel.

According to the developer, it expects the facility to go online in 2026, with efforts underway to accelerate the terminal’s start-up.

Brunsbuettel already hosts the 170,000-cbm FSRU Hoegh Gannet, which serves the Elbehafen LNG import facility.

The FSRU recently received its first LNG carrier and RWE is still working to launch commercial operations at the facility.

This is the third FSRU-based facility in Germany following the launch of the terminal in Wilhelmshaven and the private facility in Lubmin.
