German LNG Terminal achieves key milestones in the development of the Brunsbüttel LNG import terminal
German LNG Terminal GmbH (GLNG) has achieved key milestones in the development of the onshore LNG import terminal in Brunsbüttel, Germany. The terminal will make a major contribution to diversifying energy imports to Germany and Europe.

GLNG has executed the Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract with CS Gas North S.A. – a joint venture between COBRA Instalaciones y Servicios S.A. and SENER Ingeniería y sistemas S.A. Between them they have extensive experience in developing energy projects globally, including the Sines (Portugal), Sagunto and Bahía Bizcaya (Spain),Gate (Netherlands), Dunkerque (France) and Zeebrugge (Belgium) LNG import terminals.

GLNG has also entered into agreements with ConocoPhillips, INEOS and RWE Supply & Trading (as foundation customers) for long-term regasification capacity in the terminal. The terminal will have an annual throughput capacity of 8 billion cubic metres (bcma) of natural gas and can be expanded to at least 10 bcma. The terminal is expected to be operational in 2026, with efforts underway to accelerate the terminal’s start-up.

Dr Michael Kleemiß, Managing Director of GLNG, said “GLNG is delighted to announce the realisation of these critical steps towards developing the import terminal at Brunsbüttel, which is a key strategic project for Germany and the region. GLNG is grateful for the excellent cooperation and support of its shareholders, foundation customers and EPC contractor in reaching these important milestones”.

GLNG is now focussing on securing the final permits to fully develop the terminal. In parallel, GLNG is considering climate-friendly site enhancement opportunities. The terminal is well positioned to become a hydrogen supply hub for northern Germany, and synergies with nearby industries will help achieve energy transition goals in Schleswig Holstein and Germany.

About German LNG

On 4 March 2022, the Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW) on behalf of the German Federal Government, Gasunie and RWE signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the joint construction of a terminal for importing LNG at the Brunsbüttel site. KfW will take a 50% share in the LNG terminal through a financial contribution on behalf of the German government. Gasunie LNG Holding B.V. and RWE will hold shares of 40% and 10% respectively. Gasunie will be the operator of the LNG terminal. The company’s aim is to build, own and operate a multifunctional LNG terminal in Brunsbuettel. The plant will contribute to the diversification of energy/gas supply in Germany and to the introduction of LNG as a clean, alternative marine and Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) fuel, thus reducing the transport sector’s impact on the environment.

The company was founded in 2018. The head office of German LNG Terminal is based in Brunsbuettel, Germany.
