First time LNG re-export into small LNG carrier “CORAL METHANE” from Fluxys Zeebrugge Terminal

25 May 2010

On May 19th, “CORAL METHANE”, a 7,500 m3 combined LNG/Ethylene-carrier designed by TGE Marine Gas Engineering in close co-operation with the owner Anthony Veder, was successfully loaded with a full grade of LNG cargo at the Zeebrugge LNG terminal. TGE’s engineers designed and delivered the cargo handling system including LNG tanks as well as the LNG fuel gas supply system for the propulsion system. Further, the naval architecture package of the ship was developed by TGE together with Anthony Veder’s experts.

The vessel which is powered by LNG fuel is currently on its way to Norway where it will be unloaded ship to ship transfer into the “Knudsen Pioneer”, a 1,100 m3 small LNG-carrier. The cargo will be distributed at the GASNOR terminals in Norway.

Manfred Küver, CEO of TGE Marine, says: “This is an important milestone for the small scale LNG distribution chain since TGE is convinced that LNG will play a major role as fuel for electricity production in remote areas as well as marine fuel for a new generation of ships. The concept of re-exporting LNG from large import terminals can be considered as a viable option to supply small LNG satellite terminals.”
