Plans for LNG-Terminal in Eemshaven Cancelled
The Eemshaven in Groningen in the Netherlands will not have an LNG-Terminal in the future. The study into its feasibility conducted by Essent, Vopak and Gasunie which was announced in 2007 has shown that there is insufficient basis to arrive at a positive investment decision.
Groningen Seaports – the company that manages Eemshaven and the port of Delfzijl – has placed the 65-ha area that was reserved for the terminal back on the market. Discussions are currently already underway with interested candidates. This 65-ha site is the last area available in the Eemshaven situated immediately next to deep water.
