LNG terminal in Dunkirk: industrial start-up of the facility
Friday 8 July, the terminal for liquified natural gas (LNG) in Dunkirk has received its first LNG tanker, thereby launching the industrial start-up of the facility.
Under construction for the past four and a half years, the terminal's first cargo will be used to cool down the installations to the temperature of cold LNG (-162°C). A second LNG ship is due to arrive in the first half of August to complete a series of finalizing system tests. By the end of September the terminal should be ready to start its commercial activities and receive the first ships of customers.
