Welcome to Dunkerque LNG
Rising demand for gas in Europe, declining imports from the North Sea and a growing geographical distance between producer and consumer regions... The growth in global gas trading is accelerating. This rapid expansion of international flows is being accompanied by equally rapid growth in the marine shipping of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
So what are the benefits compared with building more gas pipelines? The answer is greater flexibility of supply and lower costs over distances of 3,000+ km. The LNG chain also allows gas to be shipped safely where transmission by pipeline is impossible or where the distance between its point of production and point of consumption is too great.
The construction of the Dunkerque LNG terminal is a direct response to these new challenges.
The Dunkirk LNG terminal is owned and operated by Dunkerque LNG, a company 61% owned by a consortium of gas infrastructure group Fluxys, AXA Investment Managers – Real Assets, on behalf of its clients, and Crédit Agricole Assurances, and 39% owned by a consortium of Korean investors led by IPM Group in cooperation with Samsung Asset Management.
