Energy: First LNG cargo for Lubmin before Rügen arrived

A tanker with the first load of liquefied natural gas for the terminal in Lubmin has arrived off Rügen. According to Deutsche Regas, the Seapeak Hispania loaded 140,000 cubic meters of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Egypt. The company announced that she had reached her anchorage east of the island of Rügen in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Approvals for the commissioning of the LNG terminal in Lubmin are still missing. Deutsche Regas has now applied for trial operation. The Schwerin Environment Minister Till Backhaus (SPD) said at the beginning of the week that the permit for this could be granted in a few days.

The "Seapeak Hispania" is to serve as an interim storage facility on the Baltic Sea in the future. Smaller tankers are to transport the LNG from there through the shallow Greifswalder Bodden to the actual terminal in Lubmin. The ship was assigned an anchorage in the Prorer Wiek by the authorities, about seven kilometers northeast of the Sellin pier, Deutsche Regas said.
