National Grid’s Liquefied Natural Gas facility at the Isle of Grain is to offer a reload service to market, the first time such a service has been offered in the UK.
The launch of the service follows successful cool down and ship reload trials on the 160,000 cbm Asia Vision LNG carrier, National Grid informed in a statement.
Simon Culkin Grain LNG terminal manager said, “This new reloading service facilitates our break bulk capability and complements our cooling, road tankering and regasification services.”
Grain LNG terminal can import 15 million tonnes of gas each year and the ability to supply 20 percent of the UK’s forecast gas demand.
