Product description

You can connect to:

  • The Zeebrugge and Dunkerque LNG terminals on the continent
  • Continental storage in the Fluxys Belgium Loenhout storage facility

 

You can also benefit from:

  • Access to downstream markets such as the ZTP market area (Belgium) and the TTF market area (The Netherlands).
