Rügen LNG terminal: Mukran liquid gas terminal begins trial operation

The first of two planned LNG terminals in the port of Mukran on the island of Rügen has started trial operation. According to the operating company Deutsche ReGas, the Western Pomerania State Office for Agriculture and the Environment had previously granted approval for this. The LNG tanker Energos Power has already reached Mukran, accompanied by a large police presence.

The aim of the trial operation is to test and put all land and ship systems into operation. Deutsche ReGas can check the operational viability of the system. However, this is not yet final approval for permanent commissioning; this is still pending.

There has been a dispute over the LNG terminal on Rügen for months. The federal government supported the project several times last year. The Federal Network Agency also emphasized that liquid gas imports via the Baltic Sea are necessary insurance for gas supply bottlenecks. On the other hand, environmentalists and local politicians expressed great criticism of the project.
