PARIS, France — Deutshe ReGas has started up the Deutsche Ostsee LNG import terminal in Lubmin on the German Baltic Sea coast.
TotalEnergies is contributing the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) Neptune. The vessel has an annual regasification capacity of 5 Bcm of gas, sufficient to meet about 5% of Germany’s requirements.
Following Deutsche ReGas’s open season procedure last October, TotalEnergies also contracted annual regasification capacity of 2.6 Bcm and has begun delivering LNG from its global integrated portfolio to the Lubmin terminal.
The company now plans to raise its imports to Europe to over 20 Mt/yr, or about 15% of the continent’s regasification capacity, said Stéphane Michel, President Gas, Renewables & Power at TotalEnergies.
