Energy Charter: Site Visit to Zeebrugge LNG Terminal. Delegates to the Energy Charter's Trade and Transit Group had the chance to see for themselves the growing role of LNG for European gas supply with a site visit to the LNG Terminal in Zeebrugge, Belgium, on 25 October.
The Zeebrugge LNG Terminal is operated by Fluxys and is currently in the process of being expanded following an 'open season' market survey launched in 2003. Additional information is available at www.fluxyslng.net. The visit accompanied a discussion in the Trade and Transit Group on LNG and energy security. According to most projections (for example the IEA World Energy Outlook), by the year 2030 LNG trade will be on a par with, or exceed cross-border pipeline trade, although there are strong regional variations: for geographical reasons, pipeline trade will remain concentrated on Europe where it will retain its predominant role for imports.
