Dutch Gate terminal logs lower LNG volumes

Dutch Gate terminal in the Rotterdam port saw lower LNG volumes in the January-June period when compared to the year before.

The port said in its first-half report that total LNG throughput in the port reached 3.71 million tonnes, down 4.7 percent when compared to the year before.

Deliveries to the Gate terminal, which is a hub for all LNG volumes in the port, dropped 9.2 percent to 3.41 million tonnes.

Worth mentioning here, Gate, a joint venture of Vopak and Gasunie, has earlier this month resumed operations after 26 days of maintenance. The facility closed on June 15 for its first major maintenance since the launch of operations almost ten years ago.

Moreover, the port said outgoing LNG volumes rose 114.6 percent to 300,000 tonnes.

This is due to a steady rise in LNG bunkering operations in the port as the world’s fleet of LNG-powered vessels continues to rise.

The port is a strong supporter of LNG as a bunker fuel and has developed one of the world’s biggest LNG fueling chains.

A total of ten LNG bunkering vessels operate in Rotterdam’s port area, of which three are working on a permanent basis. Gate provides most of these LNG fuel volumes.
