French LNG terminal offers 2022 capacity

The operator of the Dunkirk LNG terminal is offering up to 2bn m³ of regasification capacity in 2022 through a newly started open season, it said July 12. "The commercialised service includes slots, storage and regasification rights, offering a great flexibility to the shippers in the management of their LNG inventories," it said.

The terminal's capacity is 13bn m³/yr (about 10mn metric tons/yr), of which all but 2bn m³/yr is owned by French EDF and TotalEnergies.

The offer can be complemented by add-on services such as loading trucks and LNG bunkering vessels and small-scale LNG carriers.

Dunkerque LNG says it is committed to offering a reliable and non-discriminatory access to its available regasification capacity, which gives shippers access to Belgium and neighbouring countries. The qualification phase will close July 30 and the binding phase will start August 2.
