Dunkerque LNG says first tanker to arrive in June

France’s fourth LNG import terminal located in the port of Dunkirk is scheduled to receive its first cargo of the chilled fuel in June this year, according to the latest construction update.

This marks another delay as the EDF-operated terminal was initially expected to receive cargoes by the end of 2015, but this was postponed to end-February or March.

In June 2016, the port of Dunkirk will receive a methane tanker for the first time in its history,” Dunkerque LNG said in the project update dated February 8.

The LNG terminal will have an annual regasification capacity of 13 billion cbm of gas, enough to cover about 20% of France and Belgium’s annual gas consumption.

EDF booked 8 bcm of the LNG terminal’s capacity, while Total reserved 2 bcm of gas. The remaining gas quantities will be sold on the market after the LNG terminal has been commissioned.

EDF owns a 65% stake in Dunkerque LNG. Fluxys of Belgium has a 25% share in the terminal, and Total owns the remaining 10 percent.
