    Fosmax LNG starts transshipment service at the Fos Cavaou LNG terminal

    Fosmax LNG is to offer a transshipment service at the Fos Cavaou  LNG  terminal with effect from  December 1 st , 2015. This new service follows the signature of an exclusive partnership agreement between Fosmax LNG and Teekay Marine Solutions Ltd., formerly SPT Marine Services, the world leader in  LNG  ship - to - ship (STS) cargo transfer operations.

    This new transshipment service will allow Fosmax LNG’s clients to transfer L iquefied Natural Gas (LNG) with the use of cryogenic hoses, by mooring two vessels in double banking alongside the terminal jetty.  Moreover all the  boil - off gas  ( BOG ) generated by this operation will be managed by the terminal  provid ing greater operational  and environmental  efficiencies.

    Transshipments that use the infrastructure of  the Fos Cavaou terminal provides a higher level of availability. The Fos Cavaou LNG  terminal offers the favorable  marine and metocean conditions of the Mediterranean, including a jetty that is  protected from swell, an absence of tides and an access channel that can accommodate two vessels at the same time  together with the highest level of  professional  port services. 

    Leveraging its experience and know - how in  LNG, Oil and Petroleum STS transfers, Teekay Marine Solutions Ltd. has developed with  Fosmax LNG all the procedures necessary for safe provision of this new service.  Fosmax LNG is served by LNG infrastructure that has proven its reliability, with more than 250 vessels  received  since  2010, and  a  rate of use  that is amongst the highest in Europe (35% in 2015 and 37% in 2014).
