Greece, New Revythoussa FSU ready to receive LNG shipments

, SEE Energy News

The newly installed floating storage unit (FSU) at the Revythoussa liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, which increased the terminal’s capacity by 70 %, is ready to receive LNG shipments.

Therefore, the increased capacity is made available ahead of the auction to be held by natural gas transmission system operator DESFA in October for slots at the facility.

The new FSU also enables two LNG tankers to unload at the same time, meaning scheduled tanker arrivals can be facilitated along with short- notice import orders placed by suppliers or traders, which will be crucial during the winter season to avoid congestions.

The new FSU floating storage unit increases the capacity of the facility to more than 375,000 cubic meters of LNG compared to 225,000 cubic meters, which is the capacity of the existing three reservoirs on the islet of Revythousa. The FSU is leased by DESFA for a 12-months period.
