General – LNG Terminal
Vopak and Gasunie announced that Vopak has become a 50% shareholder in EemsEnergy Terminal.
This successfully completes the principle agreement that was announced in April 2023.
Gasunie developed this floating LNG terminal to increase the security of gas supply and to reduce the dependency on Russian gas.
The LNG terminal has been operational since 15 September 2022. It allows for an additional import of 8 billion cubic meters(bcm) per year, ca. 25% of the annual gas demand in the Netherlands.
The partners are working to increase the capacity further towards 10 bcm per year. This agreement highlights the commitment of Gasunie and Vopak to jointly develop and operate open access LNG infrastructure and contribute to the energy security of Europe. The partners are planning the further development of the Eemshaven site to facilitate the import of green hydrogen.
