June 11, 2024 [LNG Prime]- State-owned German LNG terminal operator DET expects to receive the first cargo at its FSRU-based LNG import terminal in Stade in the second half of this year.


In March, the 2021-built 174,000-cbm FSRU, Energos Force, owned by Apollo’s Energos Infrastructure, arrived at the AVG jetty in Germany’s Stade.

DET says the FSRU is ready for commissioning.

However, “there is still remaining work to be done and documentation to be drawn up, which we need for safe operation,” a DET spokesman told LNG Prime.

“As of today, we are planning the first LNG delivery as early as possible in the second half of the year,” the spokesman said.

Once operational, the almost 300 meters long ship will feed up to 5 bcm of gas per year into the German gas network.

This is the third of DET’s four FSRU-based LNG terminals following the launch of the Brunsbüttel and Wilhelmshaven 1 terminals.

DET previously said it expects commissioning to start at the its second terminal in Wilhelmshaven during the second half of this year.

The spokesman confirmed that commissioning of the Wilhelmshaven 2 terminal is still expected for the second half of 2024.

Unlike the three other three FSRU-based terminals, the jetty for the second Wilhelmshaven LNG terminal is located some 1.5 kilometers offshore Wilhelmshaven.

Excelerate’s 138,000-cbm FSRU Excelsior arrived at the Navantia yard in El Ferrol, Spain last year for a planned stopover prior to its job in Wilhelmshaven. The FSRU is still located there.

Besides working on commissioning the two new facilities, DET recently announced a new marketing round for new regasification capacities (including storage and sendout) for its terminals.

The LNG terminal operator is offering short-term and long-term regasification capacity.
