In 2020, OLT secured a permit to perform small-scale operations at its floating LNG terminal off the coast between Livorno and Pisa.

Now it will be the first regasification terminal in Italy to provide the discharge of LNG into small-scale LNG carriers, according to the company.

The published expression of interest follows the introduction of the small-scale service within the OLT Regasification Code, in consultation from 24 February to 12 April 2021.
