TotalEnergies helps Germany further secure its energy supplies

news item image
TotalEnergies has announced the start-up of the Deutsche Ostsee LNG import terminal for liquefied natural gas (LNG).
This project will consolidate TotalEnergies' position as the world's third largest LNG player and Europe's leading regasification player.
Located on the Baltic Sea coast in northeast Germany, the Port of Lubmin took delivery of the country's first floating import terminal for liquefied natural gas in December last year. Chartered by TotalEnergies, the Neptune FSRU is now being operated by Deutsche ReGas.
Floating storage regasification units - are water-based LNG terminals. Ships carrying liquefied natural gas (LNG) moor alongside the FSRU and unload their cargo, which is stored in liquid format before being regasified.
These terminals are capable of quickly transporting LNG using few non-existing infrastructure that is a jetty and a connection to a high-pressure pipe for unloading the gas. The regasified LNG is then exported to onshore facilities and injected into the gas transmission network.
The commissioning of the Deutsche Ostsee LNG import terminal for LNG will reinforce the company's status as one of the main LNG suppliers in Germany.
“Europe is facing a historic gas supply crisis caused by the sharp drop in flows from Russia. Since the beginning of this crisis, TotalEnergies has mobilised its LNG portfolio, which is broad and flexible, to send available LNG to Europe and to use its 18 Mt/y regasification capacity. Thanks to the start-up of the Lubmin terminal, TotalEnergies will be able to add to this effort and increase its imports to Europe to over 20 Mt/y, or about 15% of the continent’s regasification capacity,” said Stéphane Michel president gas, renewables & power at TotalEnergies.
