Europe’s pivot from pipeline gas from the East (Russia) to LNG is exposing regasification infrastructure bottlenecks. Over 20 FSRUs are at various stages of planning and construction for deployment in Europe over the next 5 years, while onshore terminals are being planned with an eye on conversion to hydrogen and ammonia. This step change in demand has renewed focus on LNG import terminals, with ever increasing standards for safety, reliability, and environmental impact. Moreover, developers are keen to expand down the chain to stimulate demand in emerging markets. How will developers address efficiency, transfer solutions, marine infrastructure, and future fuel readiness of import terminals?
