TotalEnergies announces commissioning of FSRU in Germany
TotalEnergies on January 13 announced the start-up of the Deutsche Ostsee LNG import terminal in Germany. The French company is contributing a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) and supplying LNG to the project.
Operated by Deutsche ReGas and located in Lubmin on the German Baltic Sea coast, the site’s official inauguration will take place on January 14. This project will make TotalEnergies one of Germany’s main LNG suppliers, the company said.
In December 2022, TotalEnergies delivered the Neptune – one of the company's two FSRUs – to Deutsche ReGas. The vessel has an annual regasification capacity of 5bn m3 of gas, enough to cover about 5% of German demand, the company said.
TotalEnergies also contracted regasification capacity of 2.6bn m3/year and began to deliver LNG from its global integrated portfolio to the Lubmin terminal.
