The Gate LNG import terminal in Rotterdam was quite busy in the January-September period with the LNG throughput almost doubling.
Overall, LNG throughput (incoming and outgoing) at the terminal was 1.75 million metric tons in the mentioned period, a rise of 84 percent compared to 2014, according to data released by the Port of Rotterdam.
Gate is handling about one liquefied natural gas carrier per week since 38 ships called at the first Dutch LNG terminal during the first nine months of this year.
Out of that, there were “16 unloads, 11 large reloads and 11 small reloads,” by the end of September, Stefaan Adriaens, Commercial Manager of the Gate terminal told recently to LNG World News.
