Belgium’s Zeebrugge LNG terminal in milestone shipment

Belgium’s Fluxys said Thursday its Zeebrugge LNG terminal welcomed its 2000th vessel since starting operations some 33 years ago.

The ship in question is the 7,550-cbm LNG bunkering vessel Coral Methane owned by Anthony Veder and chartered by Gasnor.

To remind, the LNG terminal located in the port of Zeebrugge has seen a record number of ship operations during this year.

The LNG facility in total conducted 116 ship operations during the period, two times more than in the last year.

Most of these operations were transshipments with LNG coming from the Novatek-operated Yamal project in the Russian Arctic. The facility in total transshipped 74 Yamal LNG cargoes.

Furthermore, March was the busiest ever month for ship traffic at the terminal, with a total of 30 vessels docking, more than double the previous record in May 2019.
