Second German terminal for importing liquefied natural gas opened

The second German terminal for liquefied natural gas (LNG) officially started operations in Lubmin on the Baltic Sea on Saturday. In the presence of Germany’s Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD), the operators of the plant received the operating license. After the terminal in Wilhelmshaven in Lower Saxony, this is the second German terminal that is now operational.

“We are pleased that we are taking another step towards energy security in Germany today,” said Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania’s Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig (SPD). The state’s environment minister, Till Backhaus (SPD), had previously handed over the operating license to Ingo Wagner, the managing director of Deutsche Regas. The German Chancellor then visited the floating terminal. Gas is already being fed in as part of a test run.

Another terminal in Schleswig-Holstein is to follow soon

Another terminal in Brunsbüttel in Schleswig-Holstein is to follow shortly. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is delivered by ship from several regions of the world, converted back into gas and fed into the gas network. Germany relies, among other things, on LNG to replace the lack of Russian gas supplies and is building its own infrastructure in a hurry.
