LNG in Europe 2016/2017: An Overview of LNG Import Terminals in Europe

Gas is a key source of energy supply to Europe, and plays a fundamental role in Europe’s energy supply mix. Europe is a net importer of gas, which enters Europe in one of two ways: as natural gas which is transported via pipeline, or as liquefied natural gas (LNG) which is regasified in an LNG import (or regasification) terminal. This report provides an overview of the large-scale LNG import terminals in Europe today – existing, under construction and planned – and the services provided at Europe’s existing LNG import terminals.
