Gibraltar opens LNG regasification terminal
May 7, 2019
Gibraltar has officially opened a new LNG regasification terminal that was recently completed by Shell and Gasnor (a 100% Shell-owned subsidiary). As a result, Gibraltar is switching from diesel-fueled power generation to cleaner-burning natural gas, using a newly commissioned 80-megawatt gas-fired power plant. LNG will be delivered to the terminal by ship twice a month and at night, minimising disruption to the neighbouring port and airport. It will be stored in five double-walled stainless-steel tanks, each able to hold 1,000 cbm of LNG. The first LNG cargo arrived in January to support testing and commissioning of the power plant.
