Inauguration of first LNG terminal in Germany

WILHELMSHAVEN. On 17 December, the first LNG terminal in Germany was inaugurated in Wilhelmshaven. A few days later, regasified, liquefied natural gas was fed through the newly built pipeline in Wilhelmshaven and fed into the German gas network. Attending the event were, among others, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Federal Minister for Economic Affairs Robert Habeck, Federal Minister of Finance Christian Lindner and the Minister-President of Lower Saxony Stephan Weil, as well as around 400 guests from the world of politics, business and the public services. Within just ten months leading up to this date, three companies – NPorts, OGE and Uniper – had put the necessary structures in place. “This is now the new pace in Germany, in order to advance our infrastructure in line with developments,” summed up Scholz. And Habeck continued: “In terms of infrastructure, Germany can do it. And Germany can do it quickly, if necessary.”
