Fluxys: 28 LNG Tankers Unloaded at Zeebrugge Terminal
Fluxys of Belgium said that, in the first nine months of 2013, 28 carriers were unloaded at the Zeebrugge LNG terminal, compared with 35 in the same period in 2012. Six of these were Q Flex-type carriers, one of the largest LNG carriers in the world.
Last year’s trend with regard to loading LNG carriers continued in 2013, with the loading services at the Zeebrugge LNG terminal being widely used due to the high LNG prices in Asia.
In the first nine months of 2013, 15 carriers were loaded, compared with 18 in the same period in 2012.
LNG truck loading services a success
From 10 October to 7 November, subsidiary Fluxys LNG organised a subscription window in the context of its innovated offer of LNG truck loading services.
With 24/7 service availability and the possibility to make reservations quickly and easily thanks to an online booking system, the new service offers customers greater flexibility.
It was welcomed by such a resounding success that Fluxys LNG introduced it on 1 November 2013, earlier than planned.
