World’s largest exporter of liquefied natural gas Qatar has shown interest in the German LNG import facility proposed for the port of Wilhelmshaven. 

During a visit to the port of Wilhelmshaven, Qatar’s ambassador Saoud bin Abdulrahman Al Thani exchanged information on the construction of the LNG import infrastructure and said the country is interested in growing its support to build the facility in Germany.

He said Wilhelmshaven is preferred as a location for an LNG terminal due to advantages over other port locations. He also noted Qatar is interested in long-term investment in the project and is currently looking for a local partner.

MARIKO, the Leer-based maritime consultancy and training company is currently working with Wilhelmshaven Port Industry Association and the Oldenburg Chamber of Industry and Commerce to establish an office with the task of developing LNG infrastructure on the North Sea.

The trio is also partnering on the development of the LNG terminal in Wilhelmshaven, MARIKO said in its statement.

The company representatives have shown potential sites for the terminal to the Qatari ambassador during his visit focusing on the plan to set up a large-scale facility linked to the national and international gas grids, the statement said. Three potential terminal sites have been presented.

MARIKO noted that until now the preference and final decision of the federal and state governments are expected to support Qatar’s decision for the right port location at which Qatar is willing to investing in an LNG terminal.
