DONG Energy has 17 December concluded an agreement with Gate terminal B.V. in
the Netherlands that gives DONG Energy the option to import liquefied natural
gas (LNG) to Europe in the future.
The agreement provides DONG Energy import capacity up to 3 billion m3 of
natural gas per year for a period of 20 years commencing 2011. A terminal will
be built in the Port of Rotterdam, from where the gas will be transported
onwards into the Dutch gas transmission system.
In addition to the capacity agreement, DONG Energy has acquired a 5 per cent
stake in the terminal.
”The agreement with Gate terminal B.V. will enable us to supplement our
pipe-based natural gas supplies from Denmark, Norway, UK and Russia with
natural gas from other parts of the world, further allowing us to diversify our
sources of supply and ensure flexibility in the future”, says DONG Energy CEO
