The Gate LNG terminal in the Dutch port of Rotterdam could build another jetty to cater for upcoming demand, according to the terminal’s commercial manager.

Speaking during the Flame conference in Amsterdam on Monday, Stefaan Adriaens, indicated Gate would start a feasibility study for the fourth jetty.

He noted this would be the second small-scale dedicated jetty, aimed at catering for the growing interest in small-scale services as witnessed by the recent simultaneous loading of two small-scale vessels.

The said operation has been carried out on May 1, when Shell’s Cardissa LNG bunkering vessel was loaded at the dedicated small-scale jetty while Anthony Veder’s ice-class Coral Energice received LNG at the terminal’s first jetty, one of the two jetties that can handle both small and large scale LNG carriers.

Adriaens added that, ever since the dedicated third small-scale LNG jetty became operational in 2016 and the additional two automated LNG truck loading bays in 2017, Gate has seen a steady increase in its small-scale LNG activities.

Gate terminal, owned by Gasunie and Vopak, is one of Europe’s largest LNG terminals. It consists of three 180,000-cbm storage tanks and has an annual regasification capacity of 12 Bcm – equal to around 180 cargoes per year.

The facility saw its throughput volumes reach about 0.7 million mt during the first quarter of this year, a 210 percent increase over the corresponding period last year.
