Up to 4.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas will soon reach Germany via a floating LNG terminal in the port of Lubmin. The government supports the project: This is "good news for Germany," praises Secretary of State Waiter.
Deutsche Regas plans to feed up to 4.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually into the German transmission network from December. For this purpose, a floating LNG terminal is to be moored in the Lubmin port. This is said to come from the French energy group Totalenergies. Representatives of both companies signed a corresponding key issues paper in Rostock. According to investors, the project is initially planned without state funding.
For the time being, the port of Rostock has been ruled out as a possible location for landing LNG. According to Meyer, a study has shown that both crude oil and LNG cannot be landed under current conditions. Nevertheless, the landing with a floating terminal is to be pursued further. "But that won't happen immediately." It is planned for a so-called second phase of the LNG supply for Germany after appropriate preliminary work.
