Fos Cavaou terminal has received the LNG carrier “Gaselys”, marking its commissioning after several months of tests.

This new LNG terminal belongs to the Société du Terminal Méthanier de Fos Cavaou (STMFC), owned by Elengy (70 %) and Total (30 %). It will be operated and maintained by Elengy, a GDF SUEZ company that also owns and operates two other LNG terminals in France, Montoir-de-Bretagne (on the Atlantic coast) and Fos Tonkin (on the Mediterranean

Fos Cavaou benefits from a very favourable nautical position at the entrance to the port of Fos Ouest. Directly accessible by sea 24 hours a day, the terminal can accommodate LNG carriers up to 220,000 cu.m of LNG. With a total storage capacity of 330,000 cu.m of LNG divided between 3 tanks, it will have an emission capacity of 8.25 billion cu.m of natural gas a year in the long term, increasing France’s security of supply.

Eleven LNG carriers were received at Fos Cavaou during the terminal’s test period, which
began last October.
