Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: Federal government: RWE and Stena-Power operate LNG terminal in front of Lubmin

Lubmin/Berlin (dpa/mv) - The liquid gas terminal planned by the federal government in front of Lubmin near Greifswald is to be operated by the German energy company RWE and the Norwegian Stena-Power. This was stated by the Federal Ministry of Economics on Monday on request. Commissioning is therefore scheduled for the end of 2023 at the earliest. The NDR had previously reported.

According to the German government, four LNG terminals are to be built in the north in order to become less dependent on Russian gas supplies. The first is scheduled to go into operation in Brunsbüttel at the turn of the year. Two more landing and conversion sites, which will receive liquefied natural gas from tankers and turn it into gas, are planned in Stade and Wilhelmshaven.

According to the plans, there will ultimately be two terminals for liquid gas in Lubmin. A first, private terminal of the company Regas is scheduled to go into operation on December 1, 2022. The company wants to feed 4.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas delivered by tankers into the German grid every year.

To do this, the company wants to station a so-called regasification ship in the Lubmin industrial port and convert the liquefied petroleum gas into natural gas there. According to the company, it is only 450 meters from the berth to the long-distance network with the Eugal and Nel lines.

One challenge is the low water depth of the Baltic Sea off Lubmin. The LNG tankers should therefore anchor off the Greifswalder Bodden in the Baltic Sea. According to the Regas plans, the LNG will be reloaded there into smaller tankers and taken to Lubmin. Three shuttle ships are planned for this. According to the information, there are practically no adverse effects on the environment, since, among other things, the existing infrastructure would be used.
