Gas infrastructure company Fluxys LNG on Thursday (9 December) said it has opened its subscription window booking for BioLNG liquefaction services at the Zeebrugge liquefied natural gas (LNG) Terminal with immediate effect until 23 December.
BioLNG liquefaction services is a highly attractive opportunity for terminal users to supply carbon neutral BioLNG as a biofuel for the heavy-duty transport and maritime sector, it states.
Customers will be able to book capacity for three years.
The LNG terminal at Zeebrugge is certified as a ‘conversion’ unit transforming biomethane to BioLNG according to the ISCC framework (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification). Allowing the terminal to be part of a BioLNG supply chain.
Fluxys teams have developed an innovative way allowing terminal users to convert biomethane into BioLNG and to load up to hundred trucks and two bunker ships with BioLNG in 2021.
To that end, certified biomethane entering the transport system is converted into certified BioLNG and stored in cryogenic tanks, making use of small (re)liquefaction units. The validity of the guaranties of origin is safeguarded along the transformation.
Following the market consultation on such BioLNG liquefaction service organised in July 2021, CREG has approved the new regulatory documents on 21 October 2021 and tariffs on 2 December 2021.
