The start of the second and third German terminals for liquefied natural gas (LNG) is apparently imminent.

As Federal Economics Minister Robert Habeck announced during his visit to Norway, the plants in Lubmin (Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania) and Brunsbüttel (Lower Saxony) are to go into operation by January 20th.

"Lubmin will go online next week and Brunsbüttel the week after," Habeck said.

The terminal in Lubmin is operated by the medium-sized company Deutsche ReGas.

The terminal still lacked the operating license from the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

The terminal ship (FSRU) Neptune is already in the port, and smaller quantities of LNG have already been delivered.

Brunsbüttel is operated by RWE.

The terminal ship Höegh Gannet, which is currently still in the French port of Brest, is to be used there.

On 12/17

Habeck and Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz inaugurated the first floating LNG terminal in Wilhelmshaven.

There, before Christmas, the Höegh Esperanza began converting the LNG, which had been frozen to around minus 160 degrees, into gaseous gas - and now regularly feeds gas into the German grid.

At the beginning of the month, the first LNG tanker from the USA arrived in Wilhelmshaven.

According to Habeck, Wilhelmshaven, Lubmin and Brunsbüttel should be able to process a third of the gas volumes previously supplied from Russia.

The commissioning of three further LNG terminals on the German North Sea and Baltic Sea coasts is planned for the winter of 2023/24.
