First jumbo LNG carrier at Zeebrugge terminal


The Zeebrugge liquefied natural gas terminal hit yet another milestone: with the Al Dafna LNG carrier docking, the terminal saw its first call ever of a Q-Max vessel, the largest LNG carriers in service.

The safe and successful handling of the largest class of LNG vessel in the world showcases the versatility the Zeebrugge LNG terminal offers its customers:

  • LNG carriers of all types and sizes can dock at the facility, from small 2,000 m3 LNG carriers up to the largest 266,000 m3 Q-Max LNG vessels. A full Q-Max cargo serves the yearly need of over 75,000 households heating with gas;
  • Ample pipe gas take away capacity is available for delivery throughout Northwest Europe: the terminal is directly linked into the Belgian, UK, Dutch, German and French gas markets;
  • A range of options for downstream small-scale LNG distribution: loading of small LNG carriers, LNG bunkering ships and LNG trailers to supply LNG as low-carbon energy for ships, trucks and remote industry not connected into a gas pipeline network.
