Spain’s Reganosa to Operate Sardinia’s First LNG Terminal

Special to P&GJ

Spain’s Reganosa won a contract to operate and maintain the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal on the Italian island of Sardinia, the company announced. The terminal is under its final phase of construction in the port of Oristano, on the west of the island, according to a news release.

The facilities, which includes a terminal of importation, storage and distribution, are expected to be operational in the first half of this year, the release states.

The Higas terminal includes a jetty capable of receiving LNG vessel up to 20,000 cubic meters, an unloading arm, six horizontal cryogenic holding tanks (1,500 cbm each), two LNG truck

loading bays, and a natural gas captive power generation system, according to the company’s statement. The terminal can load more than 8,000 LNG trucks each year (some 180,000 tons), for subsequent distribution to smaller satellite stations across the island, the statement indicates.

“Sardinia currently lacks a system of access to natural gas and only a small number of industrial

customers receive LNG by truck which is brought to the island by ferry,” the news release states. “The Higas terminal will provide Sardinia with LNG supply that is clean, affordable and reliable.”

Higas S.r.l. awarded Reganosa the operations and comprehensive maintenance contract of the terminal, according to the company.
