Adriatic LNG, the company that operates the regasification terminal located off the Veneto coastline in the northern Adriatic Sea, has announced a tender for this winter’s peak shaving service to supply one LNG cargo with a quantity between 60 000 m3 and 70 000 m3.
The tender will close on 9 October 2018 and LNG will be unloaded at the terminal in the second half of October 2018.
This year, the Italian Ministry of Economic Development selected the Veneto terminal for peak shaving service, part of the ‘Emergency Plan’ aimed at facing possible emergencies during the thermal year 2018 – 2019 and therefore guaranteeing the security of supplies to the national gas system. Emergencies that can significantly affect supplies include a reduction or interruption of one or more supply sources or an exceptional peak of gas demand.
Peak shaving is aimed at making available to SNAM Rete Gas, in the first quarter of 2019, previously stored gas in the form of LNG, in order to meet possible peaks in demand during the winter.
