Port of Rotterdam: Gate LNG throughput down 73 pct in Q1

LNG throughput volumes at the Dutch Gate terminal dropped substantially in the first quarter of this year, according to data released by the Port of Rotterdam on Wednesday.

The throughput volumes (incoming and outgoing) fell 72.6 percent on year to 142,000 tonnes of LNG, the data showed.

According to the data, Gate received 56,000 tonnes of LNG in the first quarter, down 85 percent as compared to the same period a year before.

A substantially lower volume of LNG was re-exported to non-EU destinations in the first quarter,” the Port of Rotterdam said, adding that the throughput volumes are expected to recover over the remainder of 2016.

Gate LNG terminal, a unit of Gasunie and Vopak, said in January its customers unloaded and reloaded a total number of 49 LNG vessels last year compared to 34 ships in 2014.

The LNG terminal in the Port of Rotterdam also recently performed its first cargo transshipment directly between two LNG tankers without chilled gas passing through one of Gate’s three 180,000 cbm tanks.
