General – LNG
Dutch gas grid operator Gasunie has secured a small floating storage and regasification unit from Belgian shipowner Exmar for its planned terminal in Groningen, as the Netherlands looks to reduce reliance on Russian gas.
Exmar said in a statement on Friday it has signed a deal with Gasunie LNG to charter its 26,000-cbm, barge-based FSRU S188 for a period of five years.
The 120 meters long FSRU has a capacity of 600 mmscfd.
“We are happy to reach this agreement with Gasunie. It proves the possibilities of our floating infrastructure solutions as a quick-to-market and competitive solution for securing energy supply to communities, industries and households,” Nicolas Saverys, Exmar’s executive chairman said.
