EIB Supports DESFA LNG Terminal Extension

EIB Supports DESFA LNG terminal Extension

The European Investment Bank is providing further support for the natural gas system in Greece with a EUR 40 million loan to the Hellenic National Gas System Operator (DESFA), for the extension of an LNG terminal on the island of Revithoussa in the outer suburbs of Athens.

Aimed at increasing reception, storage and output capacity, the investment involves the construction of a third storage tank, upgrading of the marine facilities, installation of additional cryogenic send-out equipment and improvement of the metering system. This is follow-up support to the LNG terminal on Revithoussa, further to a EUR 23 million loan provided by the EIB in 2006.

The EIB started supporting development of the natural gas network in Greece in 1991 and has to date provided a total of EUR 442 million for the gas transmission sector in Greece and the Greece-Turkey gas interconnector. The energy sector is a priority target of EIB activity in Greece and has received finance totalling EUR 4.6 billion since the country’s accession to the EU.
