European ports want EU to analyse LNG needs

The European Commission has presented its plans to build a European LNG network of 139 ports prematurely, the European Sea Ports Organisation thinks. The organisation wants to analyse the need once again.

The European ports beleive that the EU will have to reconsider its proposal to build a network of LNG terminals in the 139 most important European ports. The European Sea Ports Organisation, ESPO, assesses that the European Commissioner for Transportation, Siim Kallas, presented his proposal committing the largest EU ports to establish LNG terminals before 2020 (inland ports before 2025) prematurely.

“ESPO believes that there are not ‘silver bullet’ type of solutions and that, therefore, a closer examination of the actual needs of individual ports is necessary,” ESPO Secretary General Patrick Verhoeven states in a press release.
