    Germany receiving liquefied natural gas from third offshore terminal

    March 23, 2023 - dpa English


      Kiel, Germany (dpa) - Germany is now receiving liquefied natural gas (LNG) from three floating terminals, as gas began to flow at the new Brunsbüttel site on the Elbe River for the first time, a company said on Thursday.

      The regasified LNG, brought by a tanker, is being fed into the network in what is initially a trial operation that began on Wednesday, according to SH Netz.

      Energy company RWE, which operates the terminal, said the facility would go into regular operation in April.

      The facility at the northern German port is the third, after similar terminals were established in Wilhelmshaven and Lubim, coming as Europe's largest economy weans itself off Russian supplies.

      The new terminals were set up in quick time as Germany made a hasty switch away from cheaper gas from Moscow, following the Kremlin's full-scale invasion of Ukraine last year.

      Natural gas was first fed into the terminal in Wilhelmshaven, on the North Sea, in December, and in Lubmin, on the Baltic, in January.

      Already, volumes of gas coming through the three terminals are reaching record levels, with a peak recorded on Wednesday, when Germany's Federal Network Agency said a total of 217 gigawatt hours of natural gas flowed into the nation's pipeline system.

      That is about the amount of gas consumed annually by 10,850 sample households (20,000 kilowatt hours) per year.

      Alongside the new LNG terminals, Germany is also importing gas from Norway as it adjusts its energy mix. In terms of the quantity, 1,274 gigawatt hours of gas flowed into Germany from Norway on Wednesday.
