According to Fluxys LNG, small-scale ship loading and unloading services were used more than ever and the market shows interest for booking additional slots.

Due to this interest, the company is organising a subscription window between 28 February and 20 March for the commercialisation of additional berthing rights (ABRs) and stand alone berthing rights (SABRs) for the year 2023 and for the conversion of already subscribed ABRs into SABRs.

During the subscription window, 13 ABRs/SABRs are offered for the period starting on 1 April 2023 and ending on 31 December 2023.

Fluxys LNG added that owners of ABRs subscribed before the opening date of the subscription window have the opportunity to convert each ABR into an equivalent of three SABRs.

With an intention to ensure increased LNG supply into Europe, Fluxys is also offering 13 additional primary slots to unload, store and regasify LNG cargoes in the Zeebrugge LNG terminal in 2023.
