Elengy, a company of ENGIE, and Gate terminal B.V. have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that seeks to build cooperation in the field of LNG related services such as truck loading and bunkering. The MoU was signed on September 21 2016 by Stefaan Adriaens and Pierre Cotin, Commercial Directors of Gate terminal and Elengy respectively.
Gate terminal and Elengy share the vision that European gas markets are becoming more interconnected and want to contribute to enhance the European LNG market by developing innovative solutions. LNG terminal services can strengthen this trend by progressively developing multi-site features.
The MoU involves exploring the development for several types of services, for example:
- Truck loading service: As a more robust LNG chain is key for the development of this new market, Gate terminal and Elengy will actively look forward to standardizing their practices to make truck loading a safer, simpler and more efficient service;
- Bunkering services: Gate terminal and Elengy will study plans to support the rise of the LNG logistics by small carriers, notably for new LNG uses such as LNG as a marine fuel.
