Dunkirk’s LNG terminal and the Port of Dunkirk (Grand Port Maritime de Dunkerque) have signed an agreement for the development of an LNG supply station.

As the use of liquefied natural gas by shipping and road vehicles has grown significantly in recent months with new projects, DunkerquePort and Dunkerque LNG believe LNG will play an important role both at sea and on land in reducing greenhouse gas and particle emissions, it was said in a joint statement.

Under the agreement, DunkerquePort said it will support Dunkerque LNG in its undertaking to build and then operate the supply station, as part of a larger project to set up an LNG provisioning service by land and sea in the port of Dunkirk, thus making LNG available on the market.

Dunkerque LNG SAS, the owner and operator of Dunkirk’s LNG terminal, is owned 65% by EDF, 25% by Fluxys and 10% by Total. The terminal was commissioned on January 1, 2017, and has an annual regasification capacity of 13 billion cubic meters, which makes it the second-largest LNG terminal in continental Europe.

The ninth port of the Channel and North Sea Range and France’s third-largest port, the Port of Dunkirk has a territory which covers 7,000 hectares and includes ten towns.
