Elengy has announced that the Fos Tonkin terminal will continue operating at the site until 2028.
The proposed regasification capacity has been entirely booked (1.5 billion m3 per year) and this commitment has enabled Elengy to take the investment decision needed to extend the site’s activity beyond 2020.
The LNG terminal can evolve as a multimodal platform in the western Mediterranean basin as it has significant assets enabling to offer a diversity of LNG services to its customers: rail, road, river and sea. In addition to the unloading and loading of LNG tankers, the terminal can offer the reloading of bunkering vessels.
The company says that the terminal is a key asset to support the energy transition and, as a result, it is now working on the development of the loading capacities for small LNG vessels in order to provide the market with the required services to support the growth of LNG as a marine fuel.
The terminal could also become a loading point for trains to supply LNG intermediate storage sites outside the LNG terminals. Elengy has already launched the necessary studies for rail connection.
