Brunsbuttel FSRU Recieves First Cargo

The partnership between RWE and the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) for the supply of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is becoming visible with the arrival of the “Ish” as the first LNG cargo at the Brunsbuettel Elbehafen port. Here, the LNG will be regasified and fed into the German gas grid via the Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) “Hoegh Gannet”, which was chartered by RWE on behalf of the German government. 137,000 cubic metres of LNG were shipped by ADNOC from Das Island, Abu Dhabi, to Brunsbuettel. This corresponds to more than 82 million cubic metres of regasified natural gas and to approximately 900 million kilowatt hours of energy. The LNG is to be fed into the grid from the end of February as part of the commissioning phase of the FSRU, which is currently underway.

Demand expressed during the Market Test significantly exceeded available capacity. Several market players expressed a high level of interest for an aggregated amount close to 12 billion cubic meters per year over the five-year period. This success illustrates market’s appetite for additional LNG regasification capacity to meet French demand as well as the need to strengthen the security of gas supply.
