Transshipment of LNG at Montoir-de-Bretagne
August 7, 2013
The Elengy-operated Montoir-de-Bretagne LNG terminal has just coordinated its first transhipment from its onshore terminal. The Ben Badis LNG tanker (capacity of 177,000 m3) delivered LNG to the LNG Gemini tanker (capacity of 126,000 m3) during a 48-hour operation conducted in the utmost safety. Each carrier was moored at a jetty and connected to articulated transfer arms. The transhipment service makes use of pipelines that connect the two jetties of large capacity directly, meaning that the transferred LNG is neither mixed nor stored in the terminal tanks.
