Energy: Deutsche Regas: Start of construction for liquid gas terminal in Lubmin

The company Deutsche Regas wants to start work on the construction of a liquid gas terminal in Lubmin in Western Pomerania on Tuesday. The construction activities served to upgrade the industrial port, which was previously only used by smaller ships, and to create a secure berth, the company said.

Supervisory Board Chairman Stephan Knabe spoke of an important milestone for the project. The construction work on the port site had been reported to and applied for by the responsible authorities, and the last outstanding permit was issued on September 14th. More extensive approval procedures are required for the work outside the port.

Gas delivery from December

According to the ambitious plans of Deutsche Regas, the first gas should be delivered via the privately financed terminal as early as December. It is planned to bring the liquid gas from the large tankers anchored off Lubmin to the port with smaller shuttle ships and then to feed it into the existing gas network. The Baltic Sea pipelines Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 arrive in Lubmin, but currently no Russian gas is delivered via them.

The German energy company RWE and the Norwegian company Stena-Power also want to build a floating gas terminal in Lubmin. According to earlier information from the Federal Ministry of Economics, the terminal chartered by the federal government should be ready for use at the end of 2023.

Habeck to visit

Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck (Greens) wanted to find out about the current situation on Monday morning together with Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig (SPD). Lubmin is one of several German coastal locations where liquefied gas delivered by ship is to be landed to replace Russian pipeline gas.
