Energy: Start of construction for liquid gas terminal in Lubmin

In the western Pomeranian town of Lubmin, work is underway to set up a liquid gas terminal, which is scheduled to go into operation at the beginning of December, making it the first landing point on the German coast. After the network operator Gascade, which already has three pipelines in Lubmin for onshore transmission, the company Deutsche Regas, the initiator of the project, also started work on Tuesday. A spokesman said that it was initially about upgrading the industrial port and creating a secure berth for the floating landing station.

It is planned to bring the deep-frozen liquid gas to the port with smaller shuttle ships from large tankers anchored outside the Greifswalder Bodden. There it is to be converted into gas in a fixed special tanker and fed into the existing distribution network. Deutsche Regas put the investment at 100 million euros. The plant will be operated in cooperation with the French energy company TotalEnergies SE.

The Baltic Sea pipelines Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 arrive in Lubmin, but currently no Russian gas is delivered via them. The site south of Greifswald is one of several German coastal locations where liquefied gas delivered by ship is to be landed to replace Russian pipeline gas.
