Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE), an association representing the interests of European natural gas infrastructure operators, released its new liquefied natural gas (LNG) map and database.
GIE LNG map and database 2018 shows the main characteristics of all large-scale and small-scale operational LNG terminals in Europe, information on the LNG terminals under construction as well as the planned projects. Additionally, the nearby liquefaction plants are covered.
According to GIE, there are currently 32 LNG terminals in operation in Europe, spread along the coasts of 15 countries and offering a total regasification capacity of 227 billion cubic meters per year.
In addition, 5 bcm/y are under construction in the EU. There are also several other projects, with however little indication on the progress, GIE says.
