The Gate liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in the Dutch port of Rotterdam, owned jointly by Gasunie and Vopak, hit a record of 104 ship operations during 2018. 

The facility unloaded 8.3 million cubic meters of liquefied natural gas from 54 vessels, including 17 transshipments, Gate said in a statement on Tuesday.

A total of 3.9 million cubic meters of LNG were loaded on 23 large vessels, including 17 transshipments and 27 small vessels.

Vessels arrived from a wide range of countries, including Algeria, Angola, France, Norway, Peru, Qatar, Russia and the US. Vessels went amongst others to Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, India, Pakistan, South-Korea, UAE, while the smaller vessels went to Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands and Spain, the terminal operator said.

The customers holding capacity in Gate nominated 2.5 bcm for regasification into the national gas transmission network in the Netherlands.

Gate also loaded a record 2808 trucks mainly for distribution all over Europe, the statement reads.

Gate is currently looking for expressions of market interest in increasing its capacity by 2 bcm/year as well as for interest in an additional small scale jetty.
