About LNG Terminal Capacities Map

This website provides a free overview of the existing European large-scale LNG import facilities, and their available for access capacities. LNG import facilities are the final destination of LNG carriers and where LNG is returned to a gaseous state so that it can be fed into gas transmission grids of Europe for benefit of consumption by the European consumers.

There are currently (December 2016) 25 large-scale LNG import terminals in Europe. Of these 25 terminals, 23 are in the EU countries, and therefore subject to EU regulation of third party access and exemptions as appropriate. Two of the terminals are in Turkey, which is actively following EU-acquis energy rules implementation. Note that 1 of the Spanish terminals in Guijon is ‘in hibernation’.

All the operating large-scale LNG terminals can serve nearly half of the European gas demand. However the utilization rate of the terminals is very low. Utilisation will differ per terminal, given the role played by LNG is different across European countries, depending on supply/demand characteristics and energy mix, geographical situation, capacity of the LNG import terminals, alternative sources of supply and wholesale markets development including long term LNG sourcing contracts.

Even though Europe’s gas demand is decreasing, its dependence on gas imports is increasing. The European Union (EU) imports imports about 2/3 of the natural gas. Of those imports a big part so far was met by pipeline gas. Europe’s economic competitiveness depends upon a stable, abundant and competitively priced supply of energy to the region including both the LNG and pipelines gas imports.

I believe this website can help new entrants buyers/sellers to find quicker access to all operating LNG import terminals, and their capacities. Thus contributing to diversification in Europe, given the pending growth of the global LNG-market supply.

I used only public sources to construct this website data. Feedback on usefulness of this website is most welcome.
