Adriatic LNG Terminal

The Adriatic LNG Terminal is the first ever offshore Gravity Based Structure (GBS) for unloading, storing and regasifying Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).

Located offshore of Porto Levante, in the northern Adriatic Sea, the terminal has a regasification capacity is of 8 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year (775 million cubic feet per day), or approximately 10 percent of Italy’s current natural gas requirements.

The terminal is a strategic infrastructure for Italy as it opened a ne gas route totally independent by the pipelines, thus representing a remarkable step towards the diversification and supply of energy supplies.

Eighty percent of the Terminal capacity is utilized by Edison for a period of 25 years, to regasify LNG imported from Qatar’s North Field, as part of a supply agreement with RasGas II.
