Dpa: Hamburg opposes the establishment of an LPG terminal in the city’s port

BERLIN, 7 October – RIA Novosti. While Germany’s Hamburg Senate opposed the establishment of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in the city’s port due to shipping problems that may arise later, the Senate proposed placing a smaller LNG terminal ship, reported German news agency dpa.

Previously, the Hamburg Senate had planned the establishment of an LNG port on the Süderelbe River. It was thought that this terminal would be one of the terminals that the federal government wanted to reduce its dependence on Russian gas.

However, an environmental agency official said on Thursday that the Senate has carried out a detailed review and the results show that the size of the LNG terminal planned by the federal government cannot be brought into line with the general conditions of the port in the short term. .

The agency quoted a representative from the environmental department as saying, “In particular, the necessary measures to expand the waterways and then the risk of closing the southern part of the port to maritime traffic is hampered.” Therefore, according to him, Süderelbe should be shut down twice a week, ie when a tanker ship with a new batch of LNG docks at the floating terminal and for a period of 24 to 48 hours each time. That’s how long the unloading process takes.

At the same time, it was learned on Friday that, in agreement with the Federal Ministry of Economy, the Senate proposed to consider placing a smaller LNG terminal ship.

“A temporary LNG terminal in Hamburg port makes sense only if it doesn’t restrict the use of the rest of the port too much,” the environmental official said.

It was noted that discussions about LNG terminals in Hamburg continue.

Earlier, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that the first terminal to buy LNG in Germany will be operational in January next year, and from the end of 2023 Germany will be able to import LNG from “at least” four locations: Wilhelmshaven, Brunsbrüttel, Stade and lubmin. According to him, this will allow Germany to be independent of gas supplies from Russia.

Russian Ambassador to Germany Sergei Nechaev said earlier in an interview with RIA Novosti that the return of Berlin and Moscow to their former cooperation on energy projects in the coming years is doubtful, not because of the fault of the Russian side. At the same time, he noted that Russia is ready to launch Nord Stream 2 even tomorrow.
