Gate terminal is seeing a significant increase in LNG business, as it is abundantly available and can be supplied across the world. Together with the increased demand for energy, there are also requirements to reduce the impact on the environment and health. Natural gas and LNG offer a good solution for this. They form a flexible source of energy to supplement renewable solar and wind power sources and are expected to continue to be important for many years to come.
Natural gas is developing from a standard supply to a customised product. This means that it is used where sustainable alternatives are unavailable and where it can offer the greatest value for society and the end user. This approach, together with innovations and renewable gases, means that the entire energy supply can remain climate-neutral (less CO2), reliable and affordable. As the production of natural gas is reducing faster than its consumption in Europe, the import of natural gas or LNG contributes to energy supply security for households and industry.
