Germany's first FSRU arrives at Mukran Port
Deutsche ReGas on November 23 said that Germany’s first FSRU had arrived at the Mukran Port. The company is developing an LNG import terminal in the port of Lubmin.
The FSRU after making a stopover at Mukran will start the final transfer to the port of Lubmin. Deutsche ReGas has chartered the FSRU from TotalEnergies. The 280 long Neptune is expected to begin operations next month.
Germany has been one of the European countries hardest hit by Russian gas supply cuts. It has resorted to FSRUs to secure alternative gas supply as quickly as possible. The government aims to replace 50-60% of the previous Russian gas supply with LNG in 2023.
Germany this month completed the construction of its first floating terminal for LNG at the North Sea port of Wilhelmshaven.
