"The chemical industry uses natural gas both as feedstock and #energy source: continuous gas supply is essential! Gas quality is key. #Biomethane could be an interesting option to reduce carbon emissions and increase consumption of #renewable energies" @NicolaBXL, #GIEOpenDoorLab

"A timely discussion today at #GIEOpenDoorLab. What we need to keep in mind is that 35 bcm of #biomethane is only a first step for 2030.
By 2050, we foresee a massive boost in the production with up to 167 bcm produced by the #renewable gas sector"
@DekkerDee, @European_Biogas

"Homegrown, #sustainable and affordable #gas?
Let's look at #Biomethane: Europe has a huge potential for production and gas infrastructure is a part of the solution. We can store & transport biomethane in a cost-effective way”
@EKolst, GIE Board Member at #GIEOpenDoorLab

"Electrons & molecules will need to team up. Let's make this transformation happen.
Good to see we have more than 4⃣0⃣ gas infrastructure representatives today: multiple voices on #biomethane bringing various perspectives to tackle this #decarbonisation challenge"


"This workshop is a good example of our members' determination to support the EU with its ambitious #mission.
Boosting #biogas to deliver 35 bcm?
We can do that by bringing cost-effective solutions to transport & store #renewable molecules"

@AchovskiBoyana, at #GIEOpenDoorLab

The New LNG Services Inventory provides an overview of the new services offered by the LNG terminal operators to meet the market needs. In addition, it has a special focus on small scale LNG.

The 5 services shown in the LNG New Services Inventory include:

  • Reloading: the transfer of LNG from the LNG reservoirs of the terminal into a vessel
  • Transhipment: the direct transfer of LNG from one vessel into another
  • Loading of bunkering ships: the loading of LNG on bunkering ships which transport LNG in smaller quantities supply to LNG-fuelled ships or LNG bunkering facilities for vessels
  • Truck Loading: the loading of LNG on tank trucks which transport LNG in smaller quantities
  • Rail loading: the loading of LNG onrailcars

Most of these services are already being provided at various terminals around Europe, or are under development, with the exception of rail loading, which is not offered yet in Europe but could be a future option.

The LNG New Services Inventory shows the minimum ship size, the hourly capacity and use of these services in the past. The data are presented per terminal.

The data published is based on information provided by the LNG terminal operators at a certain point of time. The database will be reviewed and updated by GIE at least once a year or whenever a request for update is received. Active contribution to the database from LNG terminal operators who are non-GIE members is welcome.
