Gate terminal welcomes its first carbon-neutral cargo
Dutch Gate terminal, a joint venture of Vopak and Gasunie, has received the first carbon-neutral cargo, brought jointly by TotalEnergies and OMV.
The cargo was delivered last month via Sovcomflot’s LNG tanker SCF La Perouse.
Operating since September 2011, Gate import terminal is located at Maasvlakte in Rotterdam, contributing to the LNG supply in the Netherlands and Northwest Europe.
Its annual capacity is 12 billion cubic metres of LNG.
Ranking high on the terminal’s agenda is increasing sustainability and CO2 neutrality of the whole LNG supply chain and the LNG product itself, the company claims.
By using waste heat, Gate is already avoiding burning gas during the regasification activity, which means avoiding CO2 emissions. The goal is, however, to do more on carbon neutrality.
Gate says it will continue to take initiatives together with the partners of the terminal, such as the recently announced and ISCC-certified bio-LNG activity, in order to further reduce the impact of the terminal’s activities on the environment.
