Elengy: Fos Tonkin and Fos Cavaou LNG sendout reduced due to strike

Sendout from Elengy’s Fos Tonkin and Fos Cavaou LNG import terminals in France has been reduced due to a strike by Elengy’s workers over pay.

“Due to the staff strike, Elengy announced a reduction of sendout at Fos Cavaou and Fos Tonkin terminals from February 9 to Tuesday, February 13 (gas days),” a spokeswoman for Elengy, a unit of Engie’s GRTgaz, told LNG Prime on Monday.

She said that the company’s management and the union organizations “have been in negotiations since January about salary complements for 2024.”

The spokeswoman said that “discussions continue” with France’s General Confederation of Labour (CGT).

The spokeswoman did not provide further information.

According to Elengy’s data, Fos Cavaou sendout was reduced to about 45 GWh/d on February 9-11, while there was no sendout from Fos Tonkin during the three days.

Besides France’s Fos Tonkin and Fos Cavaou LNG terminals on the Mediterranean coast, Elengy also operates the Montoir-de-Bretagne facility on the Atlantic coast.

These terminals have a combined regasification capacity of some 21.5 bcm per year.

Launched in 1972, the Fos Tonkin LNG terminal has a capacity of about 1.5 bcm, while the Fos Cavaou terminal, which launched in 2010, has a capacity of about 10 bcm,

Last year, operations at Elengy’s LNG terminals were also affected due to a strike against the government’s pension reform.

Besides these three facilities, France also has the Dunkirk onshore LNG terminal and the Le Havre FSRU-based LNG import terminal, operated by TotalEnergies.
