Picture of the Day: Adriatic LNG Terminal

The Adriatic LNG terminal is the first ever offshore gravity based structure (GBS) for unloading, storing and regasifying liquefied natural gas.

The facility is located offshore of Porto Levante, in the northern Adriatic Sea, about 15 kilometers off the Veneto coastline, where it is set on the sea floor. It is connected to the national network of gas distribution by a new pipeline.

Overall, the offshore terminal is designed around a large concrete structure, which houses two LNG tanks, and includes a regasification plant and facilities for mooring and unloading LNG vessels. It is overall 375 mt. long, 115 mt. wide and the main deck is 18 mt. above sea level, with the top of the flare tower rising 87 mt. above sea level.
