Europe's LNG potential

North West Europe’s leading LNG hub continues to break records as a global supply glut results in increased throughput and loading activity

In a few short years Gate Terminal has seen LNG activity surge considerably at its facility as global production capacity increases against growing interest in the environmentally friendly fuel product.
The first LNG cargo arrived at the storage and regasification facility back in 2011, however since last year Gate Terminal has been breaking record after record, including the fact that during 2019 it has almost transferred more gas into the pipeline network than in the whole period from 2011 up to and including 2018. The company has also gone past the point where it has now put more gas into the network this year than the whole annual consumption of all the homes in the Netherlands.
But there is one particular achievement that Gate LNG’s managing director Wim Groenendijk is particularly proud of: ‘We have been able to continue with our excellent track record for reliability and safety and we have recently been able to celebrate eight years without any lost time incidents.
‘It has not only been yet another busy year for us here at Gate, but we were able to conduct all operations safely and this is one of our key business priorities.’
