French LNG terminal operator Elengy said the Fos Tonkin facility will continue operations until 2028. 

The operator said that following its call for subscriptions in February last year, for capacity at the facility post-2020, the proposed regasification capacity of 1.5 billion cubic meters per year has been entirely booked.

This commitment has enabled Elengy to take the investment decision needed to extend the site’s activity beyond 2020, the company said in its statement.

Elengy is convinced that Fos Tonkin is a key asset to support the energy transition. As a result, the company is now working on the development of the loading capacities for small LNG vessels in order to provide the market with the required services to support the growth of LNG as marine fuel.

In the future, Fos Tonkin could also become a loading point for trains to supply LNG intermediate storage sites outside LNG terminals. Elengy has already launched the necessary studies for rail connections.

Thanks to its proximity to other multimodal platforms, Fos Tonkin could provide solutions for loading LNG on the train or river barges, the company said.
