Greece’s Gastrade said it has completed the first phase of the market test for the reservation of regasification capacity at the proposed floating LNG import terminal in Alexandroupolis.

Twenty companies submitted expressions of interest for a total of up to 12.2 billion cubic meters/year of regasification capacity reservation at the floating terminal and delivery to the Greek national natural gas transmission system.

These gas quantities will be directed towards the markets of the wider Southeastern European region, Gastrade said, adding that the expressions of interest surpassed the technical capacity of the project which is designed at 5.5 bcm/year.

“The highly successful outcome of the first phase of the market test and the great interest expressed for the Alexandroupolis LNG project by many important regional and international gas players is an essential step for the implementation of the project and ultimately for the upgrade of the energy position and the energy supply diversification of Greece, Bulgaria and the SE Europe as a whole,” said Konstantinos Spyropoulos, managing director of Gastrade.

The process of the first phase of the market test was initiated on October 30, 2018, and was conducted under the guidance and supervision of the regulatory authority for Energy of Greece (RAE).

The project will proceed to the next binding phase of the market test, once the relevant new guidelines and notice to the companies that will participate in this next phase are approved by RAE, Gastrade said.
